Our Research Awards Team works collaboratively with principal investigators and other academic, research, and professional services staff to support the management of externally funded research projects.
A research awards manager (RAM) is allocated to each academic department and research centre, providing each unit a single point of contact for all projects. You may discuss any aspect of your research project with your RAM.
As principal investigator (PI) you are the budget holder and have responsibility for managing the overall project and award received by the funder.
It is the responsibility of the principal investigator as budget holder to ensure the effective financial management of the grant.
The Research Awards Team acts as budget controller to ensure that all staff appointments, expense claims and supplier payments made against a research project meet contractual, budgetary and financial regulations.
