All direct costs of a research project must be included in the proposed budget. If your grant proposal requires any commitment from the College (including equipment acquisition, financial administration, teaching a course, or cost-sharing), it must go through the College's internal endorsement procedure. This procedure requires the signatures of the Department Chair, the appropriate academic official, the people who will have the budgetary responsibility for any cost-sharing or equipment maintenance required by the proposal, and the appropriate OGSP staff person. Other signatures may be required, depending on the nature of the proposal.
The Director of Grants & Contract Administration (or designee) is the authorized institutional official who signs grant proposals for the College and must also sign all Internal Endorsement Forms ("blue sheets"), after all other signatures have been obtained.
