Thank you to those who have provided up-to-date delegated letters of authority for their Department. If you have yet to review the delegated authority for research grants, please do so by using the following guidance and template.

Heads of Department (HoD) have responsibility regarding the supervision of resources and finances as defined in the University’s Financial Regulations (Section B). However, in some circumstances, the regulations allow the HoD to delegate various aspects of research grant management whilst retaining the responsibility for them.

The HoD should use the delegated letter of authority template to inform the Research Operations Office of the named individuals and their signing limits related to the various aspects of research grants management. This should be done on an annual basis or sooner if there is a staff change involving delegated authority.

If you have any queries, please contact
