Dear Colleagues:


I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Charles Greer as UCR's new
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Research overseeing the management of UCR's
Sponsored Programs Administration effective October 1, 2009.  


Charles brings to his new position nearly 20 years of experience in contract
and grant management in the UC as well as the Federal government.  He began
his career in contract and grant management as a Contracts Specialist in the
Procurement Services Center for the US Department of Labor (DOL) in 1990.
During his eight years in the DOL, he held a number of positions with
increasing responsibilities including Senior Contract Negotiator.  He
negotiated and awarded a number of contracts including management of the
National Veterans' Training Institute, support services for the Consumer
Price Index, and development of an optical character recognition system for
the Employee Benefit Security Administration.  


In 1998, he joined DOL's Office of Small Business Programs as a Small
Business Procurement Advisor.  In this position, Charles served as an expert
on federal contracting to the DOL procurement staff and federal contractors.
He was the Program Manager for the Veteran-Owned Small Business Program,
HubZone Small Business Program and the OSBP Job Corp's Procurement Program
conducting national outreach and developing contracting strategies to
increase the participation of small businesses in DOL's contracting
activities.  In 2001, he led a multi-agency workgroup that developed and
implemented a contracting plan that increased small business utilization by
$50M a year in the Job Corps program and the group was awarded the
Secretary's Exceptional Achievement award for the initiative.  


Charles joined UC Irvine in 2003 as a Contracts Officer.  In addition to his
responsibilities as a Contracts Officer, he served as faculty for the UC
Irvine Research Administration Management Program, a certificated training
program covering all areas of research administration.  


In 2005, Charles joined UCR as a Principal Contract and Grant Officer and
became the Assistant Director for Sponsored Programs Administration in 2008.
Charles was instrumental in developing UCR's Contract and Grant Orientation
Workshop.   He has presented at the NCURA Pre-Award Research Administration
Conference and Co-Authored an Export Control presentation for NCURA Region


Please join me in welcoming Charles to his new assignment at UCR.   




Charles F. Louis

Vice Chancellor for Research
