An individual can be the PI or the Consortium Director of only one submitted proposal and only involved in up to three submitted proposals in any capacity (PI, co-PI, collaborator, etc.).
Should an individual be the PI or Consortium Director on more than one proposal, or should an individual appear on four or more proposals, all proposals involving the individual will be disqualified.
It is the responsibility of the submitter to confirm that each member of the entire team is within the eligibility guidelines. If an individual appears on multiple proposals, this should be clearly noted in the List of Participants and in Current and Pending Support; in each proposal, a clear description should be included to explain how the proposed work is complementary, not duplicative, of other proposed efforts and how the participant will budget his or her time.
