The principal investigator (PI) of a research project, whether sponsored or unsponsored, has the primary responsibility of maintaining the research records and data collected on behalf of the university. The PI is responsible for data collection, recording, storage, authorizing data access, record retention, and implementing best practices from the PI’s discipline.
