From the Desk of Allison Gottlieb, Director of Sponsored Programs Education:
This edition of the Grants and Contracts Office (GCO) Helpful Hints will be short and sweet, just like some of the people we know and love, who perhaps additionally (but no pressure), might have been the recipients of flowers, chocolates, and other heart felt gifts from you this past Valentine’s Day.
Please let this article serve as a reminder that if any related persons, regardless of height or temperament, are participating on your sponsored project, certain rules and regulations must be followed. You’ll find them here in GCO’s policy entitled, “Supervision of a Related Party on a Sponsored Program.”
The document includes a definition of related parties and what exactly you need to do.
