Thank you all for your support and engagement with the new timesheet process. UKRI have given us positive feedback on the work that we have all been doing to address the audit findings. Please continue to upload into your all historic timesheets (before 1st July 2022) into your SharePoint library.

During our conversations with UKRI, they have confirmed the following at Final Expenditure Statement (FES) stage -

Missing timesheets up to 1st July 2022 Can still claim these unevidenced costs from UKRI
Missing timesheets after 1st July 2022 Cannot claim these unevidenced cost from UKRI

Therefore, focus on making sure that all timesheets from 1st July 2022 are in the SharePoint Final Library at FES stage. Otherwise part-funded DI staff costs not evidenced by timesheets from 1st July 2022 onwards, cannot be claimed and instead would need to be covered by Department funds.

You do still need to complete a UKRI hours tracker spreadsheet with staff details. This helps you to monitor staff hours during the lifetime of the project and at FES stage, reconciliation of unevidenced staff costs can take place. The updated timesheet template, spreadsheet tracker for UKRI and other guidance is available on the Research Grants Timesheet SharePoint Site.
