Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and Intramural Programs Finance Manager
University of California San Francisco
Location: San Francisco, California
Internal Number: 66141BR
The Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and Intramural Programs Finance Manager will report to the Director of Finance and Operations and will provide pre- and post-award financial and research administration management of the CCSG and related scientific initiatives and offices and the HDFCCC's Intramural Programs.
The CCSG is a large, complex center grant with a multi-year budget of $43M and thirty-two sub-budgets, including senior leadership, program leadership, administration, planning and evaluation, developmental funds, research support cores, clinical research support, education and training, community outreach and engagement, and administrative supplements.
Several HDFCCC Initiatives and Offices are supported by a combination of CCSG and HDFCCC funds and align directly with the research goals of the CCSG: SF CAN, Precision Imaging in Cancer Therapy (PICT), the Global Cancer Program (GCP), the Office of Education and Training (OET), and the Office of Community Engagement (OCE). In addition, CCSG Senior Leadership is provided funding to carry out their leadership roles.
The HDFCCC's Intramural Programs include CCSG developmental funds, the ACS Institutional Research Grant, as well as other externally and internally funded award programs and events, including the annual HDFCCC Symposium.
This Finance Manager will work closely with the Director to ensure effective communication, discussion, and decision support to maximize the benefit of the CCSG and Intramural Programs and to minimize the risk of disallowed costs and/or reduced scoring in future competing renewals. High scores are achieved through appropriate use of the funding with resulting positive impacts and growth in cancer research, as well as in specific areas such as clinical trial accrual rates. If the CCSG is not properly managed, the HDFCCC runs the risk of decreased scores and concomitant decreased funding for critical structural operating components of the HDFCCC that are supported by the CCSG. Direction from this Finance Manager will ensure that HDFCCC goals are designed and implemented within the allowed budget of the CCSG and Intramural Programs.
The Finance Manager will work with the HDFCCC Finance and Operations Director and Chief of Staff to integrate all CCSG, intramural, and research initiative budget allocations into the larger HDFCCC operational budget. The Finance Manager will be responsible for appropriate pre- and post-award management of the CCSG and will ensure compliance with all fiscal policies applicable to the CCSG, including NCI and NIH policies. The Finance Manager will direction the preparation of CCSG, intramural award, and initiative financial reports including monthly budget status reports (BSRs), Financial Status Reports (FSRs), annual progress reports (RPPRs), and short- and long-range projections. The Finance Manager will deliver these financial status reports to the HDFCCC Finance and Operations Director, Chief of Staff, and AD for Research Development and Strategy, along with recommendations for strategic action. The Finance Manager will implement approved actions.
The Finance Manager will oversee at least $8M annually in Intramural awards. This responsibility includes granting, monitoring, and reporting monthly on these awards. The Finance Manager will review existing awards, clean them up as necessary, and develop processes and procedures for managing them in the future. The manager will also review current procedures in the context of federal, state, and university policies, and modify them as needed. The Finance Manager will provide training for staff in this area as needed.
The Finance Manager will work with Initiative and Office program managers to direct appropriate allocation and spending and prepare relevant financial reports. The Finance Manager will advise on and supervise budget development and other compliance documentation during grant submissions stemming from Initiative and Office activities.
