Client is currently undergoing a large PeopleSoft implementation, and has required some employees to focus on that project. Client is seeking backfill support to provide senior-level assistance with the management of day-to-day operations in the three departments most heavily impacted by the PeopleSoft implementation. This support will enable the three individuals managing these departments to have more time to focus on the PeopleSoft project. It is anticipated that support resources will be needed from now through August 31st (allowing for 2 months post-live support).

All support will be predominantly based at headquarters in Baltimore; occasional travel to other entities will be required. The three departments requiring support are: 1) Office of Contracts and Grants Management: OCGM operations encompass pre-award (proposal preparation/submission, negotiations), contract management (incl. post-award interpretation/issues, COA ’s, rebudgeting), research subcontracts, cost transfers and non-sponsor service agreements. Familiarity with IRB/IACUC helpful but not required.

InfoEd will be retained and is utilized to warehouse all contract and regulatory documents. 2) Research Operations: organized into 7 research departments (e.g., oncology, cardiology, health services, etc.) each headed by a director-level Scientific Center Administrator (SCA). One SCA is located at headquarters; the others are located at other Washington-based facilities. The SCA ’s act as the primary interface for all interactions between the research staff and supporting administrative and regulatory departments.

The SCA ’s (and their support staff) assist with all pre and post award activities, including review of monthly PI financial reports, draft federal cost and commercial fee-based budgets, process monthly clinical trial billing, study close outs and administrative tasks (misc. invoices, petty cash/stipends, etc.) We are seeking SCA level of support for this department. 3) Office of Financial Management: OFM operations encompass A-133 audits, corporate budgeting (Hyperion), financial reporting (monthly/quarterly variance reports and analyses at project, department and Institute level; Hyperion and Lawson), inter-company transfers, federal draw down reconciliations, federal and commercial close-outs. Corporate budgeting is expected to be the one of the key tasks over the next 3 months.

Start: ASAP Through August 31, 2013 Location: Baltimore, MD
