The Director of Administrative Programs (DAP) is directly responsible for the programmatic and administrative management of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) P30 Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) and reports to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO)/Associate Director for Administration & Finance. The designation has a vital reputational and financial impact for UCI and UCI Health. Adherence to the guidelines of the CCSG is mandatory and involves ongoing monitoring of the organization for structure, direction, and fiscal management. All decisions at the Center are taken within the context of the CCSG requirements.
The NCI-designated Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) is a campus-wide multidisciplinary matrix organization whose goal is to promote and enhance cancer-relevant research and patient care at UC Irvine. The CFCCC provides research resources to its ~175 members engaged in research and offers multidisciplinary cancer care to its patients.
The DAP has primary responsibility for all activities relating to both the competitive and non-competitive renewal coordination, documentation, and submission to the NCI. The individual is responsible for the oversight and management of all operational and program-related activities, including but not limited to: site visit rehearsals and site visits for the NCI CCSG, implementation of projects funded by the CCSG, pilot projects and limited submission applications, CFCCC scientific and research program retreats, leadership committees, lectureships and other meetings/events and coordination and communication with the larger Cancer Center community.
The DAP is responsible for a broad spectrum of complex analytical duties that lead to new and/or not yet tested recommendations and is expected to develop the conceptual framework for the implementation of unique projects/programs. The DAP participates in strategic planning for the CFCCC and is responsible for many critical high-profile projects often requiring adherence to tight deadlines. The DAP represents the CFCCC to an extensive array of individuals including, but not limited to, both UCI and external non-UCI faculty/staff and vendors and provides backup support to the CAO in communications with National Cancer Institute (NCI) staff. As the subject matter expert on NCI CCSG, the incumbent is responsible for understanding, disseminating and implementing federal policies within all CCSG-funded activities. In all of these areas, the DAP exercises independent authority, when necessary, to carry out required responsibilities. This position is critical to the overall strategic mission of the CFCCC.
