Pre-Award Services

The Research Operations Office (ROO) are responsible for assisting departmental administrative and academic staff to understand the processes and requirements associated with research grants and contracts. They work with departments to negotiate research contracts, check applications for research funding and provide guidance on the management of research projects. The Research Operations Office is organised into School teams, with each department having a named research grants advisor and contracts manager.

Before the grant is captured on UFS, a number of steps need to be completed in the Pre-Award stage :

  • Establishing the funding
  • The application process



Please see our CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 Assistance pages for help with areas of Finance during the current situation.
