Establishing a Research Project Grant

 

Your Research Project Code

Once an award has been accepted, it enters the post-award phase of administration. Research Support Services’ involvement in this phase is handled through the Research Support Desk. A unique project code is allocated on the University’s finance system, Agresso. This is used to charge all items of expenditure including purchase orders, travel claims, staff appointments and internal transfers for a project. This code should also be quoted on all internal communications concerning the grant or contract to enable easy identification of the project. 

The level of detail used in the budget breakdown will normally reflect the amount of detail required by the funder for reporting. Any subsequently agreed changes to the budget will be reflected by amending the budgets on Agresso - these budgets are controlled by the Research Accounts Office.  Amendments to research budgets will often require the approval of the funding agency.
