7.7 Site Visits
For large applications, sponsors may wish to visit the University to meet with those who will be responsible for the conduct and administration of the proposed project. The visits can vary from brief meetings to discuss the specifics of the science to multi-day reviews by a team of outside experts who will evaluate all aspects of the proposed work and the University environment that is available to support it. OSP must be notified of any proposed site visit. The office staff can assist in preparing for these visits and will be available to meet with members of the site visit team. In order to save on their travel budgets, some sponsors hold ”reverse” site visits where the PI/PD and other key personnel are invited to meet agency representatives at the sponsor’s headquarters.
