The Project Investigator Handbook for External Grants and Contracts (PDF) is intended to guide you through the management of sponsored projects at IUP. The project investigator (PI) is also known as the project director or project leader. This handbook provides a consolidated source for information about PASSHE and IUP policies, state and federal regulations, IUP procedures, services, and general grantsmanship information.

The latest version of the handbook, written collaboratively by the School of Graduate Studies and Research, the IUP Research Institute (RI), Grant and Special Fund Accounting, Human Resources, and Procurement Services, was reviewed by the RI Advisory Board, the University Senate Research Committee, and the University Senate and was published on December 12, 2018.
