ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD
I am pleased to announce that following an extensive national search, Linda Collins has accepted the position of Assistant Vice Chancellor - Contract and Grant Administration (AVC-CGA), effective June 1, 2010. Linda has been with UC San Diego since 1987, most recently as Senior Director Procurement and Contracts and Chief Procurement Officer for the campus.
Reporting to the Vice Chancellor for Research, the AVC-CGA provides leadership for the overall management and operation of the contract and grant enterprise at UCSD, implementing effective stewardship over the solicitation, negotiation, acceptance and related post-award management of sponsored project funding at UCSD.
Linda has an exemplary track record of professional accomplishments at UCSD and has been instrumental in the successful design and implementation of several campus-wide and system-wide initiatives, including the Strategic Sourcing Program, and e-Procurement (Marketplace). I look forward to working with Linda on various new initiatives, including enhancing customer service and delivering streamlined tools for contract and grant administration at UCSD.
Please join me in congratulating Linda Collins on her appointment.
