Research Enterprise Management System (REMS)

Managing indirect cost policy exceptions

Research Enterprise Management System (REMS) is the application used to request new indirect cost exceptions and assigning new sponsor codes.  The REMS Indirect Cost (IDC) Exception module collects campus IDC exception requests and process approvals, and it serves as the data repository for all approved IDC exceptions.

Accessing REMS

REMS access is limited to users of the UCOP Corporate Systems Gateway.

To gain REMS access, two forms must be reviewed, completed and forwarded to UCOP:

  1. UCOP Corporate Systems Access Request for Non-UCOP Users (pdf)
  2. University of California Electronic Information Resources User Agreement (pdf)

Before requesting access to REMS, please contact your local Contracts and Grants/Sponsored Projects Office.  Research Policy Analysis and Coordination (RPAC) will not authorize access to REMS without prior campus approval of the request.

Completed account request forms or questions about REMS should be directed to
