In general, Enterprise GIS does not have the personnel resource capacity to offer cost match of personnel time for sponsored research project commitments. For research proposals in which there are tasks that fall within the scope of EGIS's infrastructure services for geospatial data, our Service Level Agreement allows personnel time on a best-effort basis for those tasks. For tasks that go beyond the core services but which require the expertise of eGIS personnel, direct funding of eGIS personnel may be negotiated for specific OSP proposals on a limited basis. Consistent with our mission focus on technologies for safety and security, and at the discretion of the Executive Director for Converged Technologies for Security, Safety and Resilience, consideration may be given for eGIS time commitments on projects that involve security and safety for the Virginia Tech community. Such requests should be made directly to the Executive Director.
