Office of Contracts Management (OCM)

About Us

Who We Are

The Office of Contracts Management (OCM) is a division of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) Office of Research. We serve as the central Medical Center office for contract intake, processing, negotiation and management. OCM reviews both research and non-research contract, including professional services, educational and affiliation agreements.

Our goal is to support the VUMC community in efforts to fulfill the research, education, and patient care missions of the institution. To this end, we are committed to providing information, tools and services including, but not limited to, policy interpretation, compliance assurance and award management.

The OCM staff is comprised of professionals committed to the best possible customer service. We strive to develop positive, enduring relationships with our internal customers, external funding entities, and our partners across the region, country and world.
