Stanford central research administration offices - Office of Sponsored Research (OSR), School of Medicine Research Management Group (SoM-RMG) and Industrial Contracts Office (ICO) are responsible for the processing of  many sponsored research transactions and services. 

Each office has Institutional Official (IO) staff authorized to act on behalf the institution, and assume the obligations imposed by federal, state and local laws, regulations, requirements and conditions, as well as Stanford policy that applies to a proposal and award.

The IO reviews, endorses, signs and submits proposals to the sponsor on behalf of Stanford. In signing a proposal and in accepting a corresponding award, this individual certifies that Stanford will comply with the assurances and certifications referenced in the application. 

This individual's signature further certifies that Stanford will be accountable both for appropriate use of funds awarded and performance of the sponsored project activities resulting from the application.
