Participating Departments

Often a proposal includes investigators and key persons from UMB who are not in the Principal Investigator's Lead Unit.  It is important for these participating investigators/key persons and their administrators to be aware of the proposal and to review the base salary and other budget issues.

School of Medicine: 
To allow review prior to “Submit for Approval”, add the department administrator of the participating department to the proposal as a Viewer (Edit → Proposal roles).  Email the administrator to advise that they have been added to a proposal that includes their faculty.  The participating/collaborating department has 3 days to respond or it is assumed that they approve their faculty's participation.

All Other Schools:
To allow review prior to “Submit for Approval”, add the department administrator of the participating department to the proposal as a Viewer (Edit → Proposal roles).  Email the administrator to advise that they have been added to a proposal that includes their faculty.  The collaborating PI may be given viewing rights at the discretion of the administrators.
The Memo of Understanding for Collaborative Routing form (aka DRIF form) is required between collaborating departments and/or Schools. The executed form must be scanned to PDF and attached at the Narrative Type “Participating Dept Approvals”.
