Federal Contracting and the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Workshop
April 7 & 8, 2014
For those involved in the administration of sponsored awards, it is important to understand federal contracts and how they are different from grants and financial assistance awards. Sign up today for an informative workshop with Mr. David Mayo, the Director of Sponsored Research at the California Institute of Technology.

The Office of the Vice President for Research offers a 2-day intensive overview of the proper administration of grants and contracts each Fall and Spring semester. Although faculty are encouraged to attend, the course “Compliance and Research Administration Training and Education (CReATE)” is especially designed for college/school, departmental, and center/institute staff who manage and administer sponsored research grants and contracts. Please stay tuned to this website for an announcement of when the next CReATE workshop will be held..
