Finance & Grant Management

Department of Clinical Investigation (DCI)

Mission

The mission of the Clinical Research Office of Finance and Grant Management (OFGM) is to provide fiscal administration of grants, gifts and contracts in support of clinical investigations at SAMMC and other Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs) in the Southern Regional Medical Command (SRMC). The OFGM provide principal investigators (PIs) administrative and technical assistance in planning, receiving, implementing and closing out grant, gift and contract awards to ensure efficiency and compliance in meeting federal laws and institutional rules and regulations. The Contract Officer Representative (COR) offers contract management services and liaison between the Southern Regional Contracting Office and the selected vendor. The OFGM also works with the Henry M. Jackson and Geneva Foundations to manage extramural funding received by PIs. The Department of Clinical Investigation also supports research through its intramural funding program to help Investigators conduct pilot or smaller-scale studies. The Clinical Investigation Committee (CIC) makes the decision about intramural funding awards based on merit. Currently, funding is limited to $7,500 per fiscal year per protocol for a maximum of $15,000 for two years, and is based on availability at the time of request.
