    OCTR Procedures for the School of Medicine

    The purpose of the OCTR is to provide clinical researchers administrative assistance with the following tasks:

    • Contract and clinical trial budget negotiations
    • Fiscal set up and oversight of Banner research accounts including account reconciliation and closeout
    • Development of viable study budgets
    • Identification of studies that qualify for Medicare reimbursement as “qualifying clinical trials”
    • Identification of research subjects and research charges, through quality monitoring and audit, to assure research financial compliance

    The Budget Workbook is used to standardize the research budget process. It provides accurate study budget calculations for clinical trials, regardless of the sponsor.
