  9. 9. What more needs to be done?• Review and provide feedback on UCOP draft policy on International Activities UCSF has initiated registration of UC foreign affiliate offices in two PEPFAR countries and is now registered in Tanzania as “Global Programs.” Legal registration in country allows researchers to: – Open a local bank account – Lease space – Hire local staff – Apply for work visas for UCSF staff working locally Please review the enclosed: – Context sheet – UCOP Draft policy on International Activities – Summary of comments to the UCOP policy 14
  10. 10. What more needs to be done?• Continue to identify relevant policies governing global health research and educational activities reviewing policies and policy gaps to facilitate work in medium and lower income countries including: » Finalizing policy on post-exposure prophylaxis for UCSF employees (and foreign staff members working on UCSF projects?) » Develop policies and procedures for UC foreign affiliate operations » Define banking/financial policies and guidelines for registered entities » Define policies re: shipping specimens to US vs. research performed in-country 15
  11. 11. What more needs to be done?• Monitor OE pre-ward teams with extensive global research experience to evaluate efficiency, effectiveness compared to similar grants by other teams.• Provide more effective training of research personnel here and abroad in support of active research projects• Improve tracking of grants, multiple PI’s and specific sites (city, hospital, etc., not just country)• Better integrate research and educational activities given similar policy applications 16
  12. 12. What more needs to be done?• Provide a One Stop Shop for UCSF International Activities from pre-award to project close out – including project management(we need to define this as broadly as possible):An expert here helping to facilitate the work over there, including developing a foreign affiliate office to help with project management in country, compliance (both ethical and fiscal), capacity building (for research, education, and research administration and management), support for educational placement and supervision of UCSF students, residents, trainees 17
  13. 13. What more needs to be done?The Global Resource HUB will use the existing content from the GHRS web portal. Currently includesresources for researchers, program staff working in international settings, and international visitingscholars. The site facilitates researchers finding globally specific information. Current list of workingissues is used as a tool for continual updates and elimination of barriers for the global researcher. The future Global Resource HUB GHRS web portal: Working issues 18
