Contract & Grants

The SCIRE Contract & Grant Office coordinates submission of proposals and acceptance of awards for federal and non-federal grants and contracts. The Office also provides investigators with clinical research support including: Clinical Trial Agreement /CRADA negotiations, project budgeting, monitoring, and forecasting and project closeout.

We support Principal Investigators when over 50% of the projects direct recurring costs are directly associated with work physically taking place at the Long Beach VA Healthcare System or sites other than UCI that are controlled by the Principal Investigator. The SCIRE Contracts and Grants Office is the sole authority for contacting the awarding agency regarding the negotiation and acceptance of awards. The Principal Investigator and their staff are asked to contact the Contract & Grant Office directly with their concerns regarding negotiations of their grants or contracts. SCIRE will contact the awarding agency via the appropriate channel (telephone, e-mail, fax or letter) and keep the Principal Investigator advised.
