July 03, 2008
|From:||Chancellor Gene D. Block|
|To:||Vice Chancellor for Research Roberto Peccei
Assistant Vice Chancellor, Research Ann Pollack
Director, Office of Contract & Grant Administration Virginia Anders
Assistant Director, Office of Contract & Grant Administration
Contract & Grant Officer Mark Lipschutz
On March 10, 1995, the Chancellor was delegated authority to solicit and accept extramural grants and contracts for research if the direct costs in one project year did not exceed $5,000,000 (UC DA 2036). This authority was redelegated to you (UCLA DA 250.09, dated August 14, 2006), subject to the restrictions, exceptions and instructions outlined in UC DA 2036 and the additional specified dollar amount limitations.
Because the National Children’s Study Award project exceeded the $5,000,000 limit, the President approved the initial solicitation and executed a contract on behalf of the Los Angeles campus with the National Institutes of Health in the amount of $14,674,318 for a sixty-month period commencing September 28, 2007.
This authority may not be further redelegated.
