Office of Contract & Grant Administration

What we do

We are responsible for the stewardship of sponsored research and research collaborations from government, for-profit industry, non-profit, foreign, and University of California sponsors.

Sponsored Research

Involves funded agreements (contracts, grants, etc.) for UC San Diego to conduct a research project on behalf of a Sponsor.

Ancillary Research Agreements

These types of agreements are ancillary to a prior, ongoing, or future research project. They are a fundamental part of the research administration lifecycle at UC San Diego. Here are links to pages in the Research portal:
