As you are aware from recent ORA News items and Research Administration Forum (RAF) presentations and discussions, reporting and disclosure of Other Support or Current and Pending Support is an area of heightened concern for our federal funding agencies. Recognizing the importance of this topic and the need to keep our research community connected to the vast amount of information that is being disseminated, I am pleased to announce that OCGA has launched a website dedicated to Other Support and Current and Pending Support. This site provides guidance, policies, resources and FAQs related to for three of our most active federal funders:
- National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- National Science Foundation (NSF)
- Department of Defense (DOD)
We encourage you to review the website, bookmark it, and check back often, as we will be adding content regularly. You can access the new site from either the Hot Topics navigation tab or highlighted information box on the OCGA homepage (https://ocga.research.ucla.edu/).
In addition to the launching the website, we have set-up a dedicated email for questions and concerns related to other support. This email (OtherSupportHelp@research.ucla.edu) will be routinely monitored, and an OCGA staff member will respond to your inquiries. Questions received may also be used to update the FAQs on the website.
Please share this information with researchers and administrators in your department or unit. If you have feedback regarding the content of the new site, send us an email at OtherSupportHelp@research.ucla.edu.
