Award and Expenditure Credit

Award and Expenditure Credit

 

An important part of the ePA-005 is the allocation of award and expenditure credit.  Award allocation is used to allocate or divide award credit between departments when more than one department is involved.  The university uses award allocation as a metric to evaluate the productiveness of the research enterprise across departments and colleges.

 

Expenditure allocation indicates how expenditures and F&A costs are allocated across departments if more than one department is involved. The percentage listed for each department represents the proportion of that department’s resources and facilities used in the project.

 

The College of Public Health expects and requires that all faculty involved in a sponsored project be listed on the ePA-005 and receive an appropriate portion of the award and expenditure credit commensurate with their degree of involvement/responsibility in the proposed project.  Tenure-initiating organizations for PIs and Co-Investigators must be listed even if the credit allocations are 0%.
