1 Promoting Integrity in the Next Generation of Researchers A Curriculum for Responsible Conduct of Research In Occupational Therapy (2005) Funded by the Office of Research Integrity through the American Association of Medical Colleges

2 Fiscal Responsibility

3 Objectives  Describe ways in which research may be funded.  Discuss the responsibilities associated with each step of funded research.  Describe the boundaries of a funder’s role in dissemination.

4 Research Commonly Requires  Time of researchers, assistants, subjects, statisticians  Space to conduct experiment, store and analyze data  Supplies, Materials, Equipment to assess, intervene, analyze/store data  Money to pay for time, space, supplies, and other items

5 Types of Funding  Personal funds are out-of-pocket private contributions by a researcher.  Internal funds are funds or other resources received from a researcher’s institution  External funds are funds or other resources received from outside of a researcher’s institution, such as: Industry Foundations or philanthropies or societies Government (State and Federal)

6 Responsibilities Across Funding Steps  There are three funding steps: Requesting and accepting research funds Managing funds Reporting funding history

7 Requesting & Accepting Funds Requires:  Specific, accurate, and realistic description of work to be funded  That, once funded, the researcher holds the authority to conduct the study and independently analyze and report the findings

8 Managing Funds Requires:  Stewardship Commitment to ethical management of the funder’s money (Office of Research Administration and Controller’s Office, University of California at Los Angeles., n.d.)  Most funders follow federal guidelines, and require that research costs be: Allowable Allocable Reasonable (Office of Management and Budget, 2000)

9 Managing Funds (continued)  Allowable: An expense must fall within the rules set by the funder.  Allocable: An expense must be directly related to the funded study’s purpose. Researchers cannot use money for other studies or non-study purposes.  Reasonable: An expense must be similar to or less than that paid by the institution or community

10 Reporting Funding History Requires  Most funders require scheduled reports of expenditures and research progress, with a final report of all expenditures and research findings  Remaining funds may be: Returned, or Retained using a no-cost extension

11 No-Cost Extensions  Add no new money to the project  Allow researchers to continue using funds to Complete the funded project Disseminate the funded project Perform a value added activity approved by the funder (e.g., an extended follow-up of participants – as approved by institutional review board; extended analysis of data)
