Projects are separate groups to track specific expenses within an award. Projects are linked to the Award; they are numbered sequentially by iO and share the same demographic information as the Award. The establishment of projects may be required by the terms and conditions of a specific award.
Examples include but are not limited to:
- Participant support costs on an NSF award.
- Awards for research experiences for undergraduates.
- Different F&A rates for expenses within an award.
- Cost sharing requirements.
A request from the PI or Department Administrator is not needed if a project is required by the award.
A request for a project from the PI or Departmental Administrator is needed if equipment fabrication is involved, if the PI wishes to track costs by a Co-PI, or for other internal budgeting and tracking purposes.
