Policies and Forms


Sponsored Project Policies

Many external sponsors (particularly federal) and regulatory agencies require that institutions conducting research or engaging in the grant enterprise have certain policies in place to be the recipient of funds. All Investigators are required to annually submit a Conflict of Interest Disclosure form through the OSPPortal. Instructions are below on how to navigate OSPPortal.

“Investigator” is defined as the principal, co-principal and all other key person(s) who are responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of an LIU program, project, activity or service described in any application made through LIU for funding or any grant award. "Investigator" shall include the investigator's spouse and dependent children. You can find LIU’s Investigator Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure policy below. Additionally, research misconduct is an extremely serious matter. If you will be conducting research at LIU, it is very important that you review the Scientific Misconduct policy attached below. Should you have any questions, please contact Michael Marino, Executive Director of Sponsored Programs at Michael.Marino@liu.edu.
