Types of Funding:
Yes. Even though you are not the Lead PI for the project as a whole, you are the lead PI for Chapman University so you must still work with The Office of Research on the proposal submission and coordination with the lead institution. You will need to complete the Intent to Apply (ITA) [link to ITA] for Chapman University’s portion of the proposal and route the proposal internally.
Yes. Although you, as the Principal Investigator (PI), are the individual responsible for carrying out the research project if awarded, the award is made to the University, not you as an individual. Therefore, the Authorized Official is the individual at Chapman University that is authorized to commit university resources and/or enter into legal contracts for services (e.g., EVP and COO).
All proposals must be submitted through the university. Fellowships to individuals are exempted from this requirement, unless the university will operate as the fiscal agent.
