When costing a research project using a funder or collaborator that is not listed on X5, you will need to complete a New Funder Form or New Collaborator Form. These forms have recently been updated to clarify information required for each field, update risk evaluation, and streamline Research Office processes. Please delete any previous versions you may have stored locally and use the new forms instead. If you have any questions about the changes, you can contact your Pre-award team at the Research Office.

Once new funder or collaborator forms are received at the Research Office, we aim to respond to requests and complete due diligence checks within 5 working days. However, if risks are identified that require escalation, approval may be needed by the University's Committee on Benefactions and External Legal Affairs which usually meets on a monthly basis. For researchers who wish to work with organisations overseas additional checks maybe required. More information about due diligence processes can be found on the Research Office website
