The CTSI Finance team coordinates all aspects of pre- and post- award management of the CTSA, including administration of pilot and core voucher awards. The team works closely with the UCLA Office of Research Administration including the Office of Contracts and Grants Administration (OCGA), Extramural Fund Management (EFM), and Research Policy & Compliance (RPC). Our team acts as the point of contact with NIH for all fiscal matters pertaining to the CTSI grant awards.
The Grants Submission Unit (GSU) supports the grant application process, with particular emphasis on large and complex grants. Tools and services may include provision of grant writing outlines and detailed checklists of required components, project management and multi-site coordination, review and editing of grant narrative for consistency, clarity and responsiveness to the FOA.
In the cases of large proposals that advance the goals of CTSI, GSU provides hands-on management of the grant-writing process, including collecting biosketches, drafting and soliciting letters of support, and compiling resources and other boilerplate text.
The CTSI Evaluation Unit provides the evidence base for accelerating innovation and continuously improving operational effectiveness and efficiency of the CTSI. It collects and analyzes relevant data and provides transparent, timely evaluation to increase accountability. To perform these tasks, the CTSI uses a variety of data collection instruments and tools, including:
In addition to Program Area tracking of Services, Evaluation uses the LSAS to track services and to obtain more in-depth information from investigators, e.g., FDA consultations.
Evaluation also provides the CTSI community with the below services. Contact CTSIEvaluationProgram@mednet.ucla.edu to learn more or visit our Consults & Advice page to submit a request for services.
