Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have consulted with our internal auditors and taken the decision to cancel all of the H2020 interim audits until the current restrictions allow us to re-open our buildings and Departments.  For those affected H2020 grants that have a reporting period due before the final audit, our intention is to reschedule the interim audit for the next upcoming reporting period.

With regards to other audits (e.g. FP7, Innovate UK, US federal grants), as well as the H2020 final audit, the decision to proceed will be made on a case by case basis. We will need to establish if it is possible to go ahead with the audit based on guidance from the funder, as well as availability of resources and information required to undertake the audit. When audits are due, the ROO Compliance Team will be in touch with departments to discuss the options available.

In the interim, please see the following clarification from the EC.
