UKRI Terms & Conditions require that all timesheets must be signed by both the 'Employee' and by the 'Approver' within 2 months of the end of the timesheet period.

From 1st July 2022, monthly timesheets of part funded DI staff need to be uploaded regularly to your Department’s SharePoint Library. This can be done either by using the Microsoft Form to submit your timesheet or you can manually upload timesheets.

Whilst the new system of authorising and storing timesheets is bedding in, UKRI have indicated that they will offer some flexibility during this initial period regarding timesheets that are currently being processed. This means that if there has been a small delay in completing the timesheet, UKRI will allow some leniency.

Please submit all your July timesheets to the SharePoint library as soon as possible.

Note that if the online submission does not work at this time for some approvers, a pdf of the timesheet can be signed and dated electronically e.g. with jpg signatures or printed and hand signed/scanned and then loaded up manually to the library. This method can also be used for all historic timesheets.

Instructions about how to submit a timesheet using MS Forms and how to upload timesheets manually into the SharePoint library can be found on the SharePoint "How do I" page.
