The Research Services Research contracts and grants cover sheet serves a dual purpose:
- It provides Research Services with key data on research funding activities across the University, whether at the application or contractual stage. These data feed into various systems and reports, including researchers’ individual MORA calculations.
- It serves as a mechanism for the academic area (e.g. College/Institute/Centre) in which the research is to be conducted to review the proposal/contract and sign off on the research activity.
For every research application/contract, a separate cover sheet must be completed & signed by the lead researcher and reviewed & signed by the College/Institute/Centre. This must occur before the submission of applications/execution of contracts.
