INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING VA FORM 10-1436 - PROJECT DATA SHEET
A Project Data Sheet (VA Form 10-1436) is required (M-3, Part I, Change 4) for research involving VA
facilities, resources, employees, or patients. An initial Project Data Sheet must be submitted within 15 days
after the initiation of the project. A Progress report must be submitted annually thereafter.
If the principal investigator (or co-principal investigator) has not completed an Investigator Data Sheet (Page
18 -VA Form 10-5368) at this medical center, a completed Investigator Data Sheet must be returned with this
Project Data Sheet.
Projects funded by Cooperative Studies are reported only by the Study Chairperson. HSR&D Field Programs
are reported only by the HSR&D Field Program Director. For projects with co-principal investigator(s), submit
only one Project Data Sheet, arbitrarily designating one co-principal investigator as principal investigator
responsible for completing the Project Data Sheet. Report the remaining co-principal investigator(s) in item 10.
Principal/Co-Principal Investigator--All Principal Investigators (and Co-Principal Investigators)
must have a VA appointment. If the Principal Investigator of the project does not have a VA
appointment, but if a portion of the project is to be done at the VA by a VA investigator, enter
the VA investigator as the Principal Investigator and code item 5 (below) as "02".Only one
name is to be entered in this space.
Status of PI in Project--Mark "02" only if you are not the recipient of the grant or award or not
the initiator of the project.
Project Number--Each project must have a 4 digit project number.
Project Title--Do not exceed 142 spaces.
Project Title Change--If the project title has changed since last report, mark "YES." A title
change is permissible ONLY if there is NOT a change in funding source(s) (see item 12).
Item 10: In the case of Co-Principal Investigators, list one as Principal Investigator in item 1. Do not
enter the names of Co-Investigators or anyone who does not have a VA appointment.
Funding and Administration--Funding and Administrative codes are on the back of this page. It
is possible to designate up to three funding sources and administrative codes for a single
project. Do NOT, however, use a generic title for your research projects and designate multiple
funding sources for your overall effort. Keep projects separate.
Item 14: Key words are checked against the Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) index which is maintained
by the National Library of Medicine. A list of these terms is located in the Research Office or
the VA library.
Project Abstract--Organize abstract under the following headings: (a) objective of the project;
(b) research plan; (c) methodology, and (d) findings, results or conclusions reached to date.
Limit to 500 words.
