The University of Puerto Rico, being the leader in areas of research and scientific production in Puerto Rico, seeks the highest standards of compliance and integrity in the management of external funds. With this objective in mind, the Office for Research Compliance and Integrity attached to the Vice Presidency for Research and Innovation, is created in 2013 [Certification 59 (2012-2013) amending Certification 81 (2007-2008)]. On this page you will find relevant information, guides and university policies that govern research management. In addition, here you will find announcements, educational resources and training that will help with compliance management, external resource management and ethics in research.
