The Impact of Federal Regulations on Research Management in Colleges and Universities: Overview and Summaries.
Perkins, John A.; And Others
The University of California Research Management Improvement Project (RMIP) was initiated to point out federal requirements and their impacts on the educational institution. The findings are contained in nine separate reports covering case flow; environmental health and safety; federal procurement requirements; financial management: budgeting and reporting under federal contracts and grants; property management; proposal preparation, negotiation and award; protection of human subjects; and time and effort reporting. Within certain limits, the nature of and the variations in these requirements among the nine major funding agencies have been analyzed. Their relationships to the systems and objectives of both the institution and the funding agency have been considered. Each of the separate reports identifies research management problems resulting from certain requirements of selected federal sponsoring agencies; assesses the impact of those requirements on the institution; and, where appropriate, recommends standardization or modifications of the federal requirements in their implementation by the agencies or by the institutions.
