Policies and Procedures


Research has become a subtle blend of science and bureaucracy.  To help during the process we have listed some useful information on this page.  Also included is a PDF version of the Montana Tech Principal Investigator's Handbook that gives a detailed overview of the proposal preparation process and the responsibilities of the Principal Investigators. 


We will update this site on a regular basis. So, if the reference you want is not set up yet, check back or contact us for a posting time.  Below, you will find links to PDF versions of our forms, policies, and other relevant information.
