The Research Contracts & Grants Coversheet must be completed by the Chief Investigator and provides information:
- For calculating academic staff’s MORA
- Preparing research contracts
- Ensuring your Institute supports your project and any Univeristy contributions required for it
- Commonwealth Government Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC)
Research Costing Tool
The Contract Research & Grants Costing Tool is used to ensure that research projects are fully costed accurately, including all cash and in-kind contributions by the University. The costing tool also provides essential information for the Coversheet, including externally funded research time for VU Research Fellowships.
For every research application and contract, a separate cover sheet and costing tool must be completed and signed by the lead researcher before the submission of applications or execution of contracts.
