Allocation of Credit Guidance

 The following guidance has been established regarding Allocation of Credit pertaining to interdepartmental collaboration on external funding research projects:

  • When faculty from different departments serve as Principal Investigator, Co-Principal Investigator, or Co-Investigator on the same project, credit is to be distributed between those faculty members based on the decisions of their mutual Department Heads/Chairs prior to the submission of a RAMSeS proposal for routing.
  • This Allocation of Credit is reflected in the Personnel section of the RAMSeS proposal, and once the individual Department Head(s)/Chair(s) have agreed upon how the credit (and thereby how much of the award is divided between collaborating departments) is to be distributed, the amount of credit allocated must total to 100%.
