Multiple PI

SPA Policy: Budget Requirements

Multiple Principal Investigator Proposals & Awards

(v. 29 January 2021)

Sponsored Programs Administration is responsible for the administration of internal budget requirements as determined by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and by compliance requirements. UNMC has a duty to promote the understanding of and continued learning about budgeting for science across all UNMC researchers, especially early stage investigators. The internal management of Multi-Principal Investigator (MPI) proposals and awards has evolved over time, and the requirements set forth below rectify operational issues experienced by the institution with regard to MPI proposals and awards. This SPA Procedure sets forth current requirements.

Requirement: All MPI proposals/awards require a separate Child Budget for each MPI, for both modular and non-modular proposals/awards.
