Equipment from Federal Awards
First preference for other use will be given to other programs or projects supported by the federal awarding agency that financed the equipment, and second preference will be given to programs or projects under Federal awards from other Federal awarding agencies. Use for non-federally funded programs or projects is permissible by the federal government and strongly encouraged provided it does not interfere with the project for which it was acquired. User fees should be considered if appropriate.
Equipment that was purchased with funding from sources other than federal awards (e.g., start-up funds or internal awards for equipment) follow a similar policy: UH will make the equipment available for use on other projects or programs, provided that such use will not interfere with the work on the projects or program for which it was originally acquired. User fees should be considered if appropriate.
