Can a Stakeholder serve as a Dual-PI for awards under the PLACER PFA?

Given the size, complexity, and anticipated risks of the research sought by PCORI under PLACER, PCORI requires that the Principal Investigator (PI) of the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) and the PI of the Clinical Coordinating Center (CCC) be named and serve as dual-PIs to promote parity, scientific independence, and autonomy of clinical, data management, and analytical input into study decisions. If other arrangements are proposed, applicants must seek prior approval from PCORI to ensure the co-equal and independent voices of the CCC and DCC in trial design, conduct, and oversight.  

Stakeholders can make significant contributions in PLACER trials by serving as Co-Investigators or in other leadership roles within the governance or management structure of the study.
