Grant award letters and agreements are generally sent to a central email account. If you receive an award letter or agreement directly, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the PI’s name and proposal number.
- Conduct a compliance review of the award file.
- Review and negotiate the agreement. (The Industry Contracts Division of the Office of Innovation, Technology & Alliances (ITA) is responsible for reviewing and negotiating all research agreements with for-profit companies.)
- Set up the award and send it to the Controller’s Office for additional set up.
For new faculty members that have existing awards that will transfer to UCSF, the RSC will work with the PI and the department to set-up the new awards. Please notify RSC as soon as possible of the arrival of a new PI, preferable 6 months prior to arrival at UCSF.
The RSC will follow-up with the other institution to ensure that the relinquishing statement has been submitted. They will request a copy of the form and share with the department. The RSC may request the original application from PI's former institution. The PI is expected to provide information requested by the RSC and/or department. The department will provide input on the budget as needed.
