Policies & Regulations

The policies of the California State University (CSU) and our campus governing the conduct of research and sponsored projects are contained within Executive Order 890 and our Academic Policy Manual (APM 500).

California State University’s, Fresno Academic Policy Manual (APM 500) outlines the policy and practices for research and sponsored project administration in compliance with EO 890. The PI Handbook incorporates federal and state regulations, University, and Foundation/Auxiliary policies. In the event the sponsor or funding agency has a more restrictive policy than the policies referenced or developed in this handbook, the more restrictive policies will apply.
