Consortia

Description
Overview A consortium is comprised of various sponsors funding a common area of research interest and is handled differently from a stand-alone research project.
Designation Research consortia will be considered sponsored projects rather than research gifts, as intellectual property rights and data rights are typically granted to a sponsoring member of a research consortium.

Procedural and Financial Considerations
Previously Established Consortia Consortia that were loaded into Cayuse during legacy data transfer will not have a proposal tied to them.
Multi-Year Consortia - Project Entry Each project year, a new project should be made for each consortium. A new project number will be generated to facilitate orderly tracking, reporting and award management. 
Multi-Year Consortia - Budget Multi-year consortia only budget for the first year, based upon a fully executed agreement; subsequent years are budgeted based on cash received.
Multi-Year Consortia - Balance Any balance remaining in the previous year (positive or negative) is rolled forward into the next project year.
Invoicing Consortia prepare and submit their own invoices and send to the ORA Grant Billing Administrator.
