5.8 - Coordination of Proposals Involving Use of Special Facilities or Resources

Faculty PIs/PDs planning to conduct activities or utilize resources at the UM Field Station, Center for Water and Wetlands Resources, Mississippi Center for Supercomputing Research, University Outreach and Continuing Education, or other such campus units should contact the appropriate director of that facility or resource early in proposal development. Both the methods section of the proposal and the budget related to use of these facilities and resources must be approved by the appropriate director(s) before an authorizing signature can be affixed to the UM Transmittal Sheet and proposal. All appropriate fees should be included in the budget for projects planning to use these facilities and resources.
