Interdisciplinary Proposals: Sponsored Program Responsibilities

The current trends in proposal processing are towards large, interdisciplinary proposals. These proposals may require substantial involvement with Purdue participants (which may include the President, Vice Presidents, Deans and Department Heads) and also with other Universities. To assist the PI with the process, these responsibilities will help provide a transparent but effective process for the development of interdisciplinary proposals.

  • Obtain Sponsor guidelines and identify key issues
  • Communicate any issues or unlike circumstances with the business office and PI
  • If a Center will be established and requires approval per Executive Memo C-6, coordinate the process to obtain internal approvals.
  • Serve as resource on all financial issues
  • If central cost sharing is being sought, coordinate the process to obtain approval from the OVPR if necessary
  • Review and submit final proposal
