Scripps Office of Contract and Grant Administration

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Office of Contract and Grant Administration (SIO OCGA) serves as administrative liaison for activities related to Scripps research contracts, grants, and other transaction agreements funded by federal, state, and private agencies.

SIO OCGA is a service department with its primary goal to help Scripps’s principal investigators identify and obtain funding for their research. The SIO OCGA staff reviews each proposal and budget for compliance with agency guidelines and University policy; tracks the status of proposals and responds to agency pre-award audits; accepts, negotiates and signs contracts and grants on behalf of the University; processes post-award actions; and ensures compliance with reporting requirements.

SIO OCGA works closely with the UCSD Sponsored Projects Finance (SPF) office on award accounting and payment issues and the UCSD Office of Innovation and Commercialization regarding intellectual property matters. SIO OCGA represents Scripps Oceanography on various campus research administration committees taking part in policy decisions and process development representing Scripps’s viewpoint.
