Compliance with research integrity standards by applicants

RFOs should require applicants to commit to adhere to the current regulations and codes of conduct for RI. While monitoring of compliance with such regulations is the responsibility of the applicants’ employing institution (RPO), RFOs should be informed in a timely manner about potential breaches and the outcome of misconduct investigations associated with its funding. In extremis, if an RPO fails to address serious breaches of RI, the RFO should reserve the right to commission or conduct its own investigation. In their policies on misconduct RFOs should identify, and be transparent about, any additional sanctions they might apply in a case of proven misconduct.
