Faculty and Project Partner Workflow

Please review the flowchart below for help with navigating the partnering process, according to your individual project's criteria. If you have questions, or need assistance with project facilitation, contact Adrienne Chamberlain at adrienne_chamberlain@byu.edu.

Partnering Coordinating Offices

Research Administration Office

For projects that involve: student research from a government sponsor, or research involving human or animal subjects, lasers, and bio hazardous material, faculty will coordinate with the Research Administration Office (RAO) for approval.

Intellectual Property Services

When the sponsored project results in a BYU employee or student invention, a BYU trademark, or a video/music/textbook or other creative work, Intellectual Property Services will assist with securing appropriate licensing, patents, copyrights, trademarks, etc.

Grants and Contracts Accounting

Grants and Contracts Accounting manages the funding, account creation, and reporting for projects approved by the Research Administration Office.

Off-campus Receivables

When funding is not donated, faculty will work with Off-campus Receivables to coordinate payments.

BYU Scholarships

When project funding will be used for student scholarships, stipends, tuition, or grants, the department submits a tuition request to BYU Scholarships to coordinate payments.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Philanthropies

When the partner is donating funding to support a project, without an expected deliverable or contract, the funding is facilitated through Philanthropies.
