OCGA’s mission is to support UCLA faculty in their sponsored project activities by providing expertise, assistance, and education.

What we do

The UCLA Office of Contract and Grant Administration assists the campus research community in reviewing, approving and submitting proposal applications and negotiating and executing contracts and grants from government and non-profit sponsors. OCGA has primary responsibility for the interpretation of University-wide and campus policy, sponsor guidelines, and applicable federal and state laws and regulations related to governmental and non-profit sponsored activities. OCGA also executes all outgoing Subawards issued under grants or collaborative agreements.

Electronic EPASS system submission is required as of 07/31/2023.
