The Office of Clinical Trial Activation (OCTA) offers budget creation and negotiation services. OCTA works with investigators and their study team to develop budgets for clinical trials and negotiates terms with industry sponsors. OCTA budgets are developed after a preliminary coverage analysis has been approved. 

The budgeting team can help to:

  • Develop protocol-specific budgets and negotiate with sponsors to ensure adequate financial support
  • Assist the PI in projecting the costs for investigator-initiated trials
  • Ensure the use of standardized costs for research procedures and clinical trials across multiple programs
  • Ensure that budget and payment terms within contracts are accurately executed

For questions about budgeting, please contact your budget analyst or email [email protected].
