5.1 General

(Amended 4/13)

The policies and procedures contained in V-5.2 through V-5.4 outline the faculty/staff process for obtaining and managing external funding in the form of gifts, grants, and contracts in support of their educational, research, and service activities.

Gifts, grants, and contracts are divided into two groups for the purpose of this section. The first is the formal process in which the sponsor requires the applicant to submit a written application. The second is a more informal process such as a written letter or telephone call to solicit funding, or, in some cases, funds may be received without any prior contact with the funding organization or individual.
