The IAS Systemwide Programs & Initiatives (SPI) group is responsible for systemwide communications and reporting. They produce and publish an annual report on UC technology commercialization that is submitted to The Regents, submit survey information to the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM), and handle reporting requests from various UC constituents. Much of this reporting is dependent on information aggregated in the Patent Tracking System database and other data gathered by IAS systems.

SPI also promotes strategic communications with both internal and external clientele of the technology transfer program to ensure continued support for the mission and activities of the program. They organize Technology Commercialization Forums that bring innovators, entrepreneurs and business interests together to review UC research commercialization opportunities. SPI works on projects that demonstrate UC’s research, economic, and workforce impact, both within the state and beyond.
