Project Resource Allocation Request
Scientific Computing at Mount Sinai

Note: Starting with the July 2017 allocation cycle, PI's will be charged $195/1000GB/yr for storage which includes the cost of cpu and archive usage.

Your Mount Sinai fund charge number ( xxxx-yyyy ) for this project must be entered as the first "Fund" entry.

NIH funding sources should be entered as a Project Number ( E.g., 5R01CA012345-04 ) or an Application ID (E.g., 8515397 ).

This form is to be used by Principal Investigators to request compute and storage resources for a single research project. Submit a separate form for each individual project for which resources are being requested.

If this is a supplemental request to an existing project allocation, use the supplemental allocation request form.

A peer-review committee will allocate these resources based on scientific merit, financial impact, and effective use of resources.

More information about the resource allocation process, including an example of a completed request form, is available at

Principal Investigator

A principal investigator is the lead scientist or researcher for a project who takes direct responsibility for that project. This includes, but is not limited to, compliance issues, finances, research oversight, and reporting to funding agencies or department chairs on the outcome.

If you are not a principal investigator, and are not acting on behalf of a principal investigator, please contact for assistance.
