Policy Statement

It is the policy of Georgia Tech that sponsored effort is accounted for on a consistent and reasonable manner.  The PD/PI and key personnel may have other responsibilities that prevent them from devoting 100% of their time to sponsored program activities. Those activities which are deemed unallowable through sponsored programs under the Uniform Administrative Requirements (2 CFR 200), therefore, cannot be paid from sponsored program accounts or included in Georgia Tech’s effort reporting system (Plan Confirmation System – Salary Planning and Distribution). Sponsored activities must be reviewed regularly to ensure that adjustments are made consistently with sponsored terms and conditions.

Scope

This policy applies to all Georgia Tech faculty and staff members.

Definitions:

PD/PI Project Director/Principal Investigator, individual responsible for the overall design, conduct and reporting of the research or other externally funded sponsored activity.
Enforcement

Optional: To report suspected instances of noncompliance with this policy, please visit Georgia Tech’s EthicsPoint, a secure and confidential reporting system, at: https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/en/report_custom.asp?clientid=7508
