The Clinical Protocol Office has created a Pre-award finance team to work with over 100 PIs to submit budgets associated with a variety of clinical trial funding sources, including federal, foundation, and private industry. Currently, the CPO Pre-award team is separated into two teams: Systems and Budgets. Both of these teams support the activation of clinical trials, with a slightly different focus -the Systems team focuses on ensuring all systems supporting the financial components of trial activation within the CPO (EPIC, OnCore) are in place quickly and accurately. The Budget team uses OnCore as well as UNC systems (RAMSeS, ALICE, CRMS) to focus on communication of financial details of trials to the University as well as negotiate budgets with clinical trial sponsors. The Pre-award clinical trials manager will be an integral part of the Pre-award team by supervising and managing the budget team. The budget team currently employees 4 FTE, with the addition of a 5th scheduled to be added in FY 2022. The Pre-award clinical trials manager will report directly to the Director of the Clinical Protocol Office, while maintaining a close working relationship to the Associate Director of Finance Administration. This position will interface daily with PIs to ensure there pre-award needs are being met. They will be expected to troubleshoot problems as they occur and independently work with PI, OSR, OCT, OIC, and Sponsors as appropriate. The Pre-award clinical trial manager will directly mentor all members of the team to ensure current guidelines are being followed during negotiations. This position will be actively engaged with all CPO leadership in identifying and implementing process improvement initiatives.
