ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD

SUBJECT:    New NIH Training Grant Administration System

We are pleased to announce the creation of a web-based reporting system that facilitates the process of applying for and receiving NIH training grants.

The new Training Grant Administration System (TGAS) enables users to create the data tables required by NIH when PIs apply for five-year training grant renewals. TGAS users can enter the data required by NIH and/or import available data on students, faculty, staff, graduate programs, academic departments, and contract & grant activity from existing databases or from other TGAS reports. The data tables can then be exported into Excel for submission to NIH.

This system was developed by several units on campus, including the Office of Research Affairs, the School of Medicine Deanís Office, the Office of Graduate Studies, and the Office of Contract and Grant Administration.

An orientation session to acquaint PIs and their staffs with TGAS capabilities will be held on Thursday, January 28 from 3:30 to 4:30 in the CMRR auditorium. Please RSVP to Tahira Mershon by Monday, January 25, 2010 (tmershon@ucsd.edu / (858) 534-9758) if you plan to attend.

To get started, or for more information, visit the TGAS website or contact the Office of Research Affairs at 858-534-9758 or tgashelp-l@ucsd.edu.
