X5 Salary file update

A salary file update will be applied to X5 on Monday 5th August. This is to allow for the following salary changes:

  • Changes to National Insurance contribution rates from 06 April 2013
  • Changes to Clinical Grades from April 2013

These changes will automatically be applied to costings that are created after Monday 5th August.

For existing costings, you are advised to go to the Rates tab within the costing and select the “Apply all updated files now” button. This will allow the system to use the new rates for costings that you are currently working on.

X5 - Generic Funders and Searchable FAQs

Generic funders will only work on trial costings and cannot be submitted to the Research Operations Office for approval. If you need to set a new funder please complete the appropriate forms on the X5 website and e-mail them to your Research Support Advisor. Once a new funder has been approved and added to X5 the funder can be changed and then the full costing can be moved through the workflow.

The X5 Frequently Asked Questions are now searchable. Type into the search field and your results will display immediately
