In 2014, HMS launched the allowability panel as a resource for quad based departments to pose questions related to the allowability and allocability of charges to sponsored awards. The panel consists of representatives from the Office of Academic & Research Integrity, Sponsored Projects Administration, Research Administration and Operations, as well as a department representative. Anyone can submit their question to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Typically, the panel responds within three business days, however if the matter is urgent, we ask that it be noted it with the submission, and the panel will do its best to accommodate the request.
Complete details about the panel can be found in the process document. Sample questions posed to the panel appear here.
