D. Site Visits
If the project you have proposed involves large sums of money or extended support, or if it is to be funded by an agency which has not given previous support to the University, you may be "site visited." Usually the arrangements for these visits are made directly between a staff member of the agency and the PI. The agency representative will outline the subjects to be covered and the facilities and personnel to be visited, and it will be up to the PI to see that the requests are met.
Normally site visits last only a day, but the PI and other staff associated with the proposal should be well-prepared to answer questions concerning the proposed project, and the available facilities and personnel to be involved.
The ORS welcomes the opportunity to have a member of it staff in attendance at site visits since at least one member of most site teams is a business or administrative officer of some type.
