Research Quality Assurance

The Research Quality Assurance Unit (RQAU) reviews and monitors Purdue’s research administration and research regulatory compliance practices and provides leadership when conducting comprehensive reviews of the University’s compliance activities.  The RQAU staff will coordinate education and training of Principal Investigators, project staff, and departmental and business office staff regarding compliance with federal and state regulation and Purdue policies relating to research.

The RQAU does not assume the duties of the operational regulatory or business areas, and all compliance and sponsored program support activities will exist in their respective reporting structures. The RQAU’s role is to monitor these efforts and assess University-wide performance.
