RSP 001: Introduction

The Research and Sponsored Projects Policies and Procedures Manual (RSP) provides policies and procedures relating to funded and unfunded research for all ASU faculty and staff involved in research at ASU.

If questions or concerns remain after the appropriate policies and procedures have been reviewed, users should call the Office for Research and Sponsored Projects Administration for administration and fiscal concerns, the Office of Research Integrity and Assurance for compliance and ethical matters, and the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development for questions on internal grant programs and general research matters.

Corrections, changes, requests for clarification, or suggestions should be communicated to rspq@asu.edu or the RSP manual coordinator. Many of the forms referenced in the RSP manual can be found on the ORSPA Web site or on the ORIA Web site.

In the event of an inconsistency or conflict, applicable law and Board of Regents’ policies supersede university policies and university policies supersede college, department or lower unit bylaws, policies, or guidelines.

The university reserves the right to add, amend, or revoke any of the contained rules, policies, regulations, and instructions or incorporate additional ones, with or without notice, as circumstances or the good of the university community may require.

The online manual replaces earlier printed versions, which are no longer provided nor distributed. A printout of this manual and each change to this manual, created from the original text source for the online version, is retained permanently as an official record at University Archives and is available for inspection. Printouts of all revisions to online manuals will be similarly available.
