The University is responsible for complying with all the regulations and other requirements guiding sponsored projects. In order to ensure that such projects are conducted by those with the necessary skills, training, and University affiliations, only employees with a minimum .5 FTE appointment may serve as Principal Investigator in accordance with CU’s PI Eligibility Chart.

If you are not currently eligible to serve as PI on a sponsored project, you will need to obtain approval from your Department Chair, Institute Director, or from the Dean of your assigned College.  Your Proposal Analyst will need email approval on file prior to proposal submission.
