The numbering for Research Grants will be changing soon. Currently the University uses a 7 digit reference for research grants starting with “RG” and then five numbers e.g. RG12345.  We are running out of 5 digit numbers and it is expected that RG99999 will be reached in January 2019. After this, the number system will change to “G” followed by 6 numbers e.g. G100000.

Work has been undertaken to make changes in the CUFS and CHRIS systems to take account of the new number system. Departments may wish to consider any internal systems and documentation that they use and make the necessary adjustments. If you have any queries, please contact Head of Central and Research Accounting.
