Note to Our Customers:

The Office of Contract and Grant Administration (OCGA) will remain open and operational and will continue to provide service to our department partners, faculty, academics, physicians, and scholars. Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 and the health of our staff and their families is of highest priority, we are providing our OCGA staff with the flexibility of telecommuting or utilizing administrative leave as provided for by University of California President, Janet Napolitano. OCGA personnel not on administrative leave will be monitoring and responding to email and voicemail.

UCSD leadership recommends working to ensure that proposal materials are routed as early as possible to your Contract and Grant Officer, so that additional time is allotted for unanticipated delays that may be related to COVID-19 issues or individuals out of the office on administrative leave. We expect some adjustments as we adapt to operating in these uncertain and rapidly changing times, and we appreciate your understanding and patience.

OCGA will be updating the page as we receive more information. For questions and information about research projects, please email or call 858-534-3330.

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.

International Research

International research can take many different forms and may involve one or more offices.
