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 Cayuse proposal for routing.
This Allocation of Credit is reflected in the Personnel section of the Cayuse 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%.
