Over the last few weeks, we have been updating you about the timesheet requirements which the University needs to implement so that it can comply with audit requirements on UKRI funding (including Innovate UK). Part of this work has involved producing a new single timesheet template to be used for all funders. This supersedes the previous UKRI and EC timesheet templates and means that an individual only needs to complete one timesheet each month. The new template also helps administrators to calculate the salary elements to be charged to different grants through embedded formulas.

The new timesheet template is available on the ROO website. Guidance is embedded in the spreadsheet but is also available separately on the website. We will be providing further details about how to submit and store timesheets in a new SharePoint library w/c 25th July.  

In order to meet our obligations to UKRI, we have also identified where departments can include additional information at the following points - 

  • at application stage for UKRI funding, if you are aware of any part-funded Directly Incurred (DI) staff costs, please fill in the notes section of the X5 with the reference "Task 89" and the name of the person if known or add "un-named post 1". 
  • if you are doing a manual salary journal in CUFS, add the employee number into the description field. This will enable ROO to accurately report the staff listings for the FES.
