Faculty Disengagement

The Uniform Guidance recognizes that PIs can be engaged in projects even if not physically on-campus. 

PIs must submit a request through RAS for prior approval from the federal sponsor if they will be “disengaged” from any project for more than 3 months or if there is a 25% reduction in time committed to the project from the approved budget.  If a PI is actively engaged in a project, even if offsite, such approval is not required.

Applicable Uniform Guidance section: 200.308
