2.5 Administrative Offices in Support of Research
Sponsored Programs administration is a joint effort between the University administrative offices, including, but not limited to, the Office of the Provost, the Provost of the Medical Campus, the Associate Vice President for Research Compliance, the Vice President for Finance, the Comptroller, the OSP, and the Post Award Financial Operations (PAFO), the deans and chairs, and the PI/PD.
2.5.1 Corporate Responsibilities
Externally sponsored project funding is conferred to the University under its corporate name: Trustees of Boston University. Therefore, awards of funds for sponsored projects are awards to the University and commitments under agreements are commitments of the University. Any work performed by a faculty member of the University under such a project must be considered as work performed for the University.
