The Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) is the Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) Office charged with negotiation and execution of research-related agreements with outside institutions, including sub-agreements and independent contractor agreements, Professional Services Agreements (PSAs: MedStar Georgetown University Hospital) and clinical trial agreements. Sponsored Research Sub-Agreements or Independent Contractor Agreements (ICAs) are Initiated by OSR at Principal Investigator (PI) request after receipt of a primary award. Upon receipt of award, Research Development Services (RDS) Subcontract Specialists (SS) will work with investigators to initiate a request to the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) to establish, modify or close out a subagreement from GUMC to other institutions, such as subcontracts and ICAs. GU-Pass is used to track the initiation and modification of subawards and ICAs. RDS staff will help the PI to obtain the necessary documents from the sub institution and will route the information in GU-Pass.
