Why the University must sign-off on the grant
Grants are normally agreements between the institution and another group.
Despite the hours we may put in on a grant, it really isn’t ours. A grant is normally a contract between the funding agency and the University. The University has the responsibility to be sure that whatever efforts take place on the campus, or through the campus, are consistent with the mandate of the University and abides by all the regulations governing the University. That last part is very significant. The rules and regulations governing the University are many and varied. Fortunately, each administrative department is quite cooperative in helping to decipher what those are and how they impact your grant efforts.
