Award, Contract Negotiations and authorisation

Award Process

It is at this point the Grants & Contracts/Joint Research Office teams will draft and negotiate the relevant contracts such as collaborative agreements, subcontracts, material transfer agreements or research agreements for staff. Please note that the costings obtained at the application stage will form the basis of these agreements within the finance schedules. Please contact your School Administrator/Research Support Officer for further guidance.

If ethics and governance approval is not required, your RES account paperwork will then be passed to Contract Financial Management (CFM) to have your RES account opened.

If ethics and governance approval is required, University Research Office/Joint Research Office will require approval letters before your research account can be opened
