Letter from the VPRI about SPS Mandatory Certification for PIs
This message is part of an ongoing communication stream around a new mandatory certification program for all Principle Investigators (PIs) and co-PIs. The certification program was developed by Sponsored Project Services (SPS) and resides on our Electronic Proposal Clearance System (E-PCS). It was thoroughly vetted by faculty and departmental grant administrators during the fall of 2014 and is now available to all PIs. The certification module can be completed at any time and takes 15 to 20 minutes. As of March 31, 2015 the certification is mandatory for all PIs and co-PIs and must be completed annually.
