All requests for funding from Genentech must include a referenced needs assessment that clearly defines the unmet educational need or gap the activity will address. Once the educational need is determined, a documented Needs Assessment is general linked to the formulated Learning Objectives for the program. The needs assessment must be documented and referenced.

Genentech is interested in understanding elements of activity execution. The purpose of this understanding is not to exercise any level of control over the activity, but to assess whether the elements of the proposed activity are consistent with the provider's stated objectives and their ability to achieve them.

If the scope of your program or activity changes, you may access the status report area within the Genentech funding request system at any time and answer the related questions. This will trigger a notification to Genentech's medical education grants manager who will review the scope changes and assess whether Genentech will continue to fund the activity.
Genentech prohibits grant requestors and their educational partners (e.g., third party providers) from performing promotional activities for Genentech while also contributing to, providing or accrediting independent medical education (IME) funded in whole or part by Genentech, unless there is sufficient separation (firewalls) between the grant requestor's or partner's promotional and medical education business units.
Before a grant request is considered, the grant requestor must certify to Genentech that it and all its educational partners adhere to a firewall policy that is in compliance with Genentech's firewall criteria, an overview of which may be found below. All requestors must complete a Firewall Certification Form when registering online with Genentech's Funding Request System and must re-certify compliance annually.
Exhibit opportunities include booth space, or other space where Genentech staff may distribute appropriate promotional materials, and where these opportunities may be purchased separately from the any grant support.
Grant funding may not be used for promotional exhibits, so we ask this question to ensure that exhibit fees are not included in the grant request. However, exhibit opportunities may be offered to and paid for by other Genentech departments, including field sales.
Whether or not an exhibit opportunity is available has no impact on the grant decision process.
In the event that an exhibit opportunity is offered in conjunction with an independent medical education event, providers are expected to follow ACCME guidelines.
