Please notify your RPM or Fellowship Manager immediately of your intent to submit an application so that the budget preparation and PIF/PDRF submission and routing processes can begin.  We recommend notifying RMG 4-6 weeks in advance of the sponsor deadline to support RMG’s efforts to manage and complete all proposals.

Clinical Trial Contracts that must be completed before December 31, 2021

To ensure timely budget development and contract negotiation for industry-funded clinical trials, please note the following:

  1. The contract must be fully executed by all parties 5 PM PST, Friday, December 3, 2021 in order to allow sufficient time to issue an Award Acceptance Notification (AAN) and establish the PTA and 98-accounts.  ORA said that to issue an NOA by December 17 they must have “all necessary information” in SeRA from the department by Friday, December 10, 2021 @ 5 PM.
  2. If you are not already working with a CT RPM or CCTO Financial Analyst on a final budget for your industry-funded study, it will be extremely unlikely that we will be able to complete the study budget and contract before the November 25 deadline.
  3. Contact your CT RPM or CCTO Financial Analyst if you have questions about processing of clinical trials.

In the event of an emergency during the closure, please leave a voicemail message at 650-725-0661.  Be sure to leave a call-back number.  Voicemail will be monitored and your call will be returned.
