RSP 101: General Research Policy
To maintain institutional eligibility for sponsored projects
Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development
Office for Research and Sponsored Projects Administration
ASU encourages all eligible members of the university community to seek support for their instructional, research, public service, and other creative activities.
In order to protect institutional eligibility for sponsored project funding, ASU must comply with federal, state, and sponsor requirements for programmatic, regulatory, fiscal, and property stewardship. Therefore, principal investigators (PIs) must comply with the requirements governing each proposal and award. The Office for Research and Sponsored Projects Administration (ORSPA) is responsible for verifying PI compliance and providing certifications of university compliance to sponsors, upon request.
For more information on how RSP policies are implemented during each phase of a project, see the ORSPA Web site.
For additional information about the eligibility criteria for becoming a principal investigator, see RSP 102, “Principal Investigator Eligibility.”
