The Head of Department/Institution may delegate their responsibility to a suitably nominated individual within the department. This is done on a template letter provided by the Research Operations Office which lists the areas of delegation as well as the limits granted to individuals. The letter will also stipulate what may not be delegated as well as a maximum level for delegation which may vary from time to time.
This letter needs to be updated and sent to the Research Operations Office at least annually as requested or as soon as any changes need to be made. Failure to provide this information may result in unnecessary delays whilst the relevant approval is sought from the Head of Department.
