Project Records maintains the projects for AgriLife and USDA. Projects include Hatch, McIntire-Stennis, State, Grants with NIFA, Animal Health Grants, Administrative, and Internal. Every AgriLife Principal Investigator with a research program is required to have a project. This Project also serves as an accounting tool. After 5 years, Hatch and McIntire-Stennis Projects must be terminated, and a new project initiated. Annual Reports and a Final Report are required for all projects except Internal and Administrative Projects.
