i. Consultants

Consultant services must be justified and information furnished on each consultant's name and expertise, organizational affiliations, compensation rate, and numbers of days or percent of effort devoted to your project.  Federal regulations prohibit faculty from being paid as consultants if they are in the same department as the principal investigator.  In order to receive compensation, consultation must be across departmental lines and in addition to the normal work load.  Employees of Coastal Carolina University or of any other state agency can only be paid for consulting according to the State's Dual Employment policies which set limits on the amounts that can be earned and requires that fringe benefits be paid on any compensation.
