OBI On/Off-Campus Access

To access your OBI reports you can follow this link (OBI works best if opened in Mozilla Firefox). If you are having trouble logging in you might need to complete an Access Request Form. If you are interested in attending an OBI training workshop you can sign up here. Classes will be held alternating Fridays during the Fall semester.

We are aware that a great number of P.I.’s are off campus engaging in their research, but still need to be able to access their project financial information.  There is now a tool that can help you achieve this goal.  It’s called “the Virtual Lab”. 

By logging into this portal you can access your OBI login page and pull up your OBI dashboard off-campus.  We have created a PowerPoint presentation that will guide you through the set-up process.  If you have any questions or issues with your installation/set-up, please feel free to contact us and we'll be more than happy to assist you. 


SPF Policy Changes

The Sponsored Programs Foundation Board of Directors approved two policy changes during the 2010-2011 Academic Year that affect P.I.'s The Indirect Rate Policy sets approved rates for Indirect Cost revenue and provides a process for negotiation when the Principal Investigator intends to use less than the funder published maximum allowed rate. The Excess Indirect Revenue Distribution Policy outlines how Indirect revenues are used and defines “excess” revenues.  The Policy then provides for the distribution of the excess revenues at specified percentages.
