Principal Investigator Advisory Committee

The PI Investigators Advisory Committee has been formed in response to a recommendation in the Research Strategic Planning Task Force Report of 2011. The recommendation builds on the identification of “continuous communication with faculty about research issues, organizational structures and potential opportunities” as a best practice and the “effective and sufficient administrative support for research” as a vision. Ongoing communications is especially important given documented frustrations with unclear policies and procedures surrounding post-grant administration. The integration of pre- and post-award functions through their consolidation within the ORSP is an important step in addressing historic challenges. The PI Committee will now work with ORSP and the PI community as a whole to complete the transition to a new grants administration model.



Specific roles and responsibilities of the PI Advisory Committee are to:

  • Advise the Associate Vice President for Research and Professional Development on all matters associated with pre- and post-award management.
  • Contribute information on a regular basis to the collaborative site ORSP is developing so that PI’s knowledge, expertise and insights into grants management can inform others
  • Contribute to the development and maintenance of a strategic plan for stewarding the research mission and vision to be developed by ORSP and the Academic Senate’s Committee on Research.
  • Review subrecipient risk assessments, assist with the development of monitoring plans, and review results of subrecipient findings, and corrective action plans.


The following list of committee members consists of at least one PI per college, one PI representing grants administered by staff and administrators, and the Chair of the Academic Senate’s Committee on Research.
