Office of Research Administration
Policies, Procedures & Guidelines
Last Revised: August 2003
The policy of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (the University) is
that any full-time (.75 FTE or higher) employee of the University who applies for extramural
research grants and contracts shall identify the University as the employer institution. Part-time
employees who have primary work responsibilities in an outside institution but expect to conduct
the project under the auspices of the University shall also identify the University as an employer.
If the full-time employee of the University serves as the Principal
Investigator (PI), the University shall be the lead institution in the proposal. Full-time
employees of the University who serve as Co-PIs on collaborative grants led by other institutions
shall design the proposal so that the University serves as a subcontractor. This policy applies
even in cases in which the applicant does not receive compensation through the grant.
Exceptions to these procedures shall be approved by the Vice Provost
for Research prior to submitting
the proposal for review.
