Research management group (RMG) Winter closure

 In line with the School of Medicine's decision to close operations during the winter    break, the Research Management Group (RMG) offices will be closed from Dec 19,    2015 – Jan 3, 2016. RMG staff will not be available during this period. The office will    re-open for business on Monday, January 4, 2015.

   To ensure timely submission of sponsored project and fellowship proposals, please    note the following internal deadline:

Sponsor deadline Stanford Internal Proposal Deadline (by 9am of the date noted below)

Please notify your RPM or Fellowship Manager immediately of your intent to submit an    application so that the budget preparation and PDRF routing processes can begin.

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

   Clinical Trial contracts that must be completed before December 31, 2015:

   1. The contract must be fully executed by all parties Tuesday, December 1 in order to    allow sufficient time to issue an Award Acceptance Notification (AAN) and establish the    PTA and 98-accounts. OSR has said that to issue an NOA by Dec 18 they must have    all necessary information” for PTA set-up from the department by December 7, 2015 @    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 December 8 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.
