This policy provides an overview of UW–Madison responsible conduct of research (RCR) requirements for U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA NIFA) awards.
Principal investigators, co-investigators, and participants paid from USDA NIFA awards. This includes, but is limited to, undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and sub-recipient participants.
