(excluding UC SAN DIEGO Medical Center)

Subject:    OCGA Holiday Closure Dates, 2014

During the holiday season, UC San Diego Campus (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially be closed December 24, 2014 through January 4, 2015. OCGA will be closed during this period and the contract and grant officers and analysts will not be available to review and submit proposals, or take action on award negotiations.

Principal Investigators and Department/ORU administrators should be mindful of this closure when planning the submission of proposals with deadlines that fall between these dates, as well as deadlines in early January 2015. Proposals with deadlines from December 24, 2014 through January 4, 2015 will be treated as if the sponsor deadline is Friday December 19, 2014. In accordance with OCGA Timely Submission of Proposal Guidelines, the final proposals with the draft science must be submitted to OCGA not later than 8am Monday, December 15, 2014. The final complete version of the proposal including the final science narrative must be submitted to OCGA by noon Thursday, December 18, 2014.

The Timely Submission of Proposal guidelines are available at:

A helpful chart depicting the days proposals are due to OCGA based on their deadline is available at:

We look forward to assisting Investigators and Department/ORU staff with any proposal actions prior to the UC San Diego campus holiday closure and appreciate your efforts in being timely in these submissions.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!
