OGAC Unsolicited Research Policy

February 28, 2012

As part of its mandate to coordinate the US government (USG) response to the global HIV epidemic, the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) oversees a portfolio of rigorous scientific and program evaluations. These studies are carried out through PEPFAR implementing agencies, notably CDC, NIH, and USAID, in-country USG teams, and partner country institutions. OGAC has put in place mechanisms and a coordination structure to ensure that all PEPFAR research is rigorous, addresses priority questions, and is carried out by implementing agencies with transparency and in conformity with USG procurement regulations.

Accordingly, unsolicited ad hoc research proposals submitted to OGAC, either in writing or proposed through discussion with OGAC staff will be used for informational purposes only. Information from such proposals can inform scientific or programmatic priorities for PEPFAR, and OGAC staff may use such information as the technical basis for future competitive funding opportunities. However, such research proposals cannot be used to secure funding or the intention of funding from OGAC.
