What is a PI allotment?

When an external grant is funded, a portion of the indirect costs received from the funding agency are returned to the Principle Investigator. The current rate of return is 7% of what comes to INHS. This is deposited in a fund monthly and can be used for hiring, travel, purchases (computers, office supplies, books, etc.), or other expenses allowed by University policy. Essentially, if the expense is clearly work-related and justifiable, it is allowable on these funds as long as you go through the standard hiring/travel/purchasing processes.

 For questions about the distribution, contact Wendy Harris (1012 Forbes, 333-4186, wgharris@illinois.edu).

For questions about allowable expenditures, see any of the business office staff.
