Statement of Principal Investigator Eligibility

When James Madison University submits proposals to external sponsors and accepts awards for sponsored projects, the university assumes significant financial and legal obligations. Sponsors fund projects based in part on the professional expertise of the Principal Investigators submitting proposals; however the formal award is made to, and the obligations are assumed by, James Madison University. Under the general oversight and authority of James Madison University, the Principal Investigator of a sponsored project is the individual who bears primary responsibility for technical compliance, completion of programmatic work, fiscal stewardship of sponsor funds, and compliance with administrative requirements of the project. Thus the university must ensure that individuals serving in the capacity of Principal Investigator have the technical competence and administrative capabilities to oversee a sponsored project. The following Statement of Principal Investigator Eligibility provides institutional requirements for who may serve as a Principal Investigator on an externally sponsored project at James Madison University.

Any full-time faculty member or staff member who holds one of the following positions may be identified as a principal investigator for sponsored activities:

Any individual who holds one of the following positions may be identified as a project correspondent for sponsored activities IF one of the individuals listed above is named as Principal Investigator on the project:

In some cases, a sponsoring agency may have restrictions on who may serve as a Principal Investigator on a particular project or program that are more stringent than James Madison University. In these cases, the sponsor's requirements will take precedence over institutional policy for that particular project.

Individuals allowed to serve as Principal Investigators on sponsored activities are required to comply with James Madison University's business practices, policies and procedures.
