School-level Monitoring and Data Verification

The School of Medicine Dean’s Office periodically reviews new awards to ensure that they are displaying correctly in the PI Dashboard.  The Dean’s Office also works with departments to resolve outstanding monthly expense reports when a PI has left the institution and when a PI has monthly expense reports that are greater than 60 days past due.

SOM Research Dashboard Guidance and Procedures

We are continually thinking of ways that the Dashboard could be improved upon and we welcome your feedback!  Please report errors, send comments, or make suggestions to SOMRESADMIN@vcu.edu.  We will forward these on to the VCU Controller's Office
