Responsible Conduct of Research

The Office of Research & Economic Development has developed a standardized set of forms for Responsible Conduct of Research Training for all undergraduate, graduate and post doctoral scholars funded by or cost-shared both NIH and NSF sponsored projects.  Please download the appropriate form for your project.

Requests for Waivers or Modifications to Cost Sharing, Indirect Costs and Tuition Remission

LSU has federally negotiated rates for indirect cost recovery that apply to all external grants and contracts. Moreover, NSF and LSU, as policy, does not allow voluntary cost sharing for proposals.  However, there are situations where a reduction or waiver of indirect costs, or providing voluntary cost sharing is required or strongly suggested. Researchers may request waivers of indirect costs from the Office of Research & Economic Development. All requests will require uploading a signed Cost Sharing or IDC Waiver Request Form.

Ad Hoc Request for Resources Support

The Office of Research & Economic Development has developed a standardized form to request approval for Ad Hoc Requests for Resources Support. These should be used for project support requests which do not fit any of our other support programs.

Office of Sponsored Programs Forms

The Office of Sponsored Program has designed a set of forms to assist you with grant proposals and awards. These include generic budgeting spreadsheets, award modification requests, and other documents to help you prepare or modify your grants.
