Can a Principal Investigator (PI) serve as the AO?

The AO certifies that the applicant organization will: (1) comply with all applicable assurances and certifications referenced in the application; (2) be accountable for the appropriate use of funds awarded; and (3) oversee the performance of the grant-supported project or activities resulting from the application.
