Any external audit requirements will be included in the terms and conditions of each award. External audits will be arranged by the Research Operations Office and auditors may need to visit departments to check invoices and payroll information. The Research Operations Office will contact departments to arrange these visits.
Our most common grant audits are for EC-funded grants, Technology Strategy Board, Research Councils, National Institute for Health (US) and some major UK charities e.g. Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK.
