Negotiating with Agencies and Routing Proposals
Vice President and Chief Financial Officer
For any sponsored program activity, a formal proposal must be routed through the department, school and the appropriate research office before any commitments are made by sponsored project employees.
Employees are encouraged to make initial contact with potential sponsors to determine if there is sufficient mutual interest to warrant a formal proposal. The appropriate campus research office (Research and Sponsored Programs - IUPUI or Sponsored Research Services - IUB) and the Assistant Vice President of Research and the University Graduate School are both available to assist faculty members with discussions and negotiations.
