The Office of Finance and Research facilitates the research administration process for the faculty and staff within the UCLA Department of Pediatrics and the Children’s Discovery and Innovation Institute. Our staff assist with both pre- and post-award activities, such as the contract and grant submission process, budget development and negotiation, reconciliation of funds, effort reporting, invoicing and reconciliation of payments, liaison between UCLA contract/grant/billing offices and funding agencies, guidance on regulatory processes, and review of billing compliance issues.
Please contact the Pre-Award staff as soon as you are considering initiating a new research project. The Post-Award staff will contact you upon issuance of a new award and will provide guidance for next steps. We look forward to working with you!
