When we've had accidents happen during travel on sponsored projects and
the department always pays the deductible out of departmental funds, not
from the award funds.

Section 21 of A21 covers insurance, but I'm not certain how much help that
will be. Probably none.

Good luck,

 Accountability and accounting are not the same thing
