|Sponsored Projects Credits Policy|
The University of Texas at El Paso
Office of Research and Sponsored Projects
The University routinely produces internal and external reports on sponsored projects in the form of annual expenditures, proposals, new awards and others. Historically, all reporting is based on the PI’s home department or the business unit managing the project. In order to extend appropriate credits, the following issues are introduced in this policy:
(a) Assigning sponsored project credits that allow investigators in a multi-investigator grant (and their respective academic units) to receive credit in proportion to their efforts;
(b) Sharing credits for sponsored projects between academic and research centers; and
(c) Accounting for sponsored projects activities based on academic contributions of faculty members and their participation in research centers.
