This policy is created to:
As one of the nation’s leading research institutions, UW–Madison recognizes the importance of providing good stewardship of institutional and extramural funds. The university’s stewardship responsibilities include managing federal awards in compliance with federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the federal award.
Support for the faculty’s research goals is critical to the success of the university. The purpose of this policy is to foster excellence in research by promoting the successful management of sponsored programs through the establishment and maintenance of effective internal controls. Internal control activities are important to several aspects of sponsored programs:
All faculty and staff who engage in or propose to engage in sponsored projects; all federal and non-federal sponsored projects
