Policies and Regulatory Information

The policies and guidelines for core operations were developed to provide shared resource and core facility leaders with crucial policy and regulatory information.  All shared resources and core facilities should adhere to these guidelines to ensure operations are in compliance with both federal and Vanderbilt policies.  The Vice Provost for Research Office and the Office of Contract and Grant Accounting are available to provide business planning, policy guidance and invoicing support services to all shared resources/core facilities.
