Social Sciences Grant Support (SSGS)
Social Sciences Grant Support (SSGS) (ssgs.ucla.edu) aids in the preparation of proposals, offering assistance on policies and procedures, budget preparation, and other relevant aspects of extramural support proposals. Once a project is funded, SSGS staff provide principal investigators with a monthly statement of expenditures, projection of expenses as needed, and advice regarding dispersal of funds. Depending on the principal investigators' requests and needs, SSGS handles all or any part of the accounting and administrative tasks associated with a given project. These services include, but are not limited to, the hiring of project personnel, processing of payroll and invoices, request for travel advances, and the purchase of equipment and supplies.
