PI Training and OGC Staff Meet-and-Greet

The Office of Grants & Contracts (OGC) will be providing Principal Investigator Training on Thursday, April 6, 2017 from 1:30pm – 2:30pm in the Large Conference Room at Anderson Hall. The training is intended to provide an overview to NMSU researchers and staff involved with proposal preparation and submission, as well as award negotiation/acceptance of externally-sponsored Grants and Contracts. The training is typically offered twice each year and is strongly encouraged for all prospective and current Principal Investigators that have yet to attend. Once the training presentations by OGC, Research IT Support, and Accounting & Finance have concluded, you are invited to meet members of the OGC research administration team. Contract Administrators and support staff will be available for a brief meet-and-greet and refreshments will be provided. Please join us!     

Pursuant to Chapter 5, Section 5.94.40, of the Administrative Rules and Procedures of NMSU, the principal investigator is the individual responsible for the intellectual direction of a research project and the training of graduate students. This responsibility includes the conduct of the project, fiscal and administrative accountability, and adherence to the requirements of all relevant laws, regulations, policies, procedures and agreements. If a project has multiple investigators (lead principal investigator and co-principal investigators), they shall share the responsibility and accountability for leading and directing the project, both intellectually and logistically.

The Training will begin promptly at 1:30pm; please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes early for check-in. Register online through the Center for Learning & Professional Development via Training Central at: https://trainingcentral.nmsu.edu/Saba/Web/Main/goto/GuestOfferingDetails?offeringId=class000000000010884. For questions, please call Vicki Morgan, OGC Administrative Assistant, at 575-646-1590.
