Pre-Award and Fellowship Support

Research Management Services (RMS) provides support by finalizing budgets and required documents for proposal submission according to agency guidelines. If you plan to submit solicited federal, state, and private grants the Research Servicies Coordinator (RSC) must be notified at least 30 days in advance. For larger proposals, including those with subcontracts and international components, at least 60 days notice are required. Complex proposals including institutional training grants and cooperative agreements require 4-6 months notification to the RSC. After notification, a submission timeline will be established for submitting the proposal to ensure that the applicant meets the agency's deadline. All grants and fellowships require institutional signatures, and will be coordinated by the RSC. Final submission is performed by either the PI or RSC depending on the funding. If the PI submits, RSC is copied on the submission, and should the RSC submit, the PI and Department will be notified within 24 hours. If you have questions, please contact your Research Services Coordinator.

Purchasing Information

Purchasing is coordinated through BearBuy. If you require assitance within BearBuy, contact the IT Service Desk at 415-514-4100. Questions regarding BearBuy ordering or existing orders can be directed toward your Financial Analyst.

For project specific purchases with federal funds, i.e. office supplies or fed ex charges, the requestor needs to provide a brief justification on why it is related specifically to the research. The justification information will be kept by the department as backup documentation. Most purchasing does not require this special justification, but if you are not sure, feel free to ask your PI, Financial Analyst, or Operations Analyst.

General Overview of Purchasing:
1. Request from lab is routed to the administrative office via BearBuy.
2. Request is approved by the Procurement Department and vendor is notified.
3. Order received, route all packing slips and other documents to the Finance Unit as backup for receipt of purchase.
4. Voucher approved by Procurement Department Voucher Approver.
