Following the Research Grants User Group (RGUG) meeting on 28 September 2010 the enclosed proposals were discussed and agreed

As of 1 November 2010, the Research Office will no longer return the paperwork of unsuccessful applications to Departments unless we are asked to do so. When an application is submitted to a sponsor, the Research Office will retain the file until either we have been advised that it has been unsuccessful or 12 months has passed.  Once an application is deemed unsuccessful the Research Office will:

  • Change the pFACT status to Project Rejected
  • Send a monthly e-mail to Departments listing the unsuccessful applications which are due to be destroyed
  • Retain the paperwork for a further 3 months before destroying unless the Department requests otherwise

Introducing this new procedure means that we are reducing unnecessary paperwork and streamlining the process. If you have any questions please contact your School Team at the Research Office.
