Application PI

3

Occasionally, there could be a difference in the eGC1 PI and the PI on the Application, for example, in the case of career development applications.

To designate an Application PI, select that role for the person after adding them to the PI, Personnel, & Organizations page.

If the Application PI is a UW person, SAGE will add the Application PI to the Approval Flow and send an approval required email notification at the appropriate time. If the Application PI does not already have an ASTRA role for SAGE, you will need to give them one, so that they can approve the application.  There are two non-PI researcher ASTRA roles that could be used.

As part of the approval process, the UW Application PIs are required to certify the PI Assurance Statement. The following image shows the assurance statement in the approval dialog.

For Grant Runner applications, the person designated as the Application PI will appear as the PD/PI on the SF 424 and Key Person Expanded forms.

If the Application PI is a non-UW person (an affiliate), SAGE will not add them to the approval graph. The eGC1 PI is responsible for securing assurance statements for those non-UW Application PIs.
