The MMRF Office of Grants and Contracts provides researchers and sponsors with efficient, effective and convenient support services for pre-and post-award administration of research projects, and provides funding agencies with single-source access to HCMC researchers and technology.

Pre-award services include assistance with identification of funding sources and proposal preparation, reviewing, approving and submitting proposals, and negotiating and accepting grant awards and contracts.

Post-award services include industry and government sponsor relations, subcontracting, compliance assurance, assistance with expenditure management, program close-out and audit, and institutional reporting.
