Managing research finance
If you need advice and guidance on the financial management of your research study then help is at hand.
The Faculty Research Finance team can help you with:
- monitoring of research performance against budget, including liaising with academics, researchers, project administrators and School finance officers
- ensuring that invoices / claims are submitted promptly to sponsors in line with terms and conditions of research grants and contracts, which includes supporting the debt recovery process
- in liaison with pre-award research staff, ensuring that budgets for individual projects are correctly recorded in Oracle Financials
- working with Heads of School and Heads of School Administration to prepare the annual budgets, rolling forecasts and 5 year plans for all research activity across the Faculty
For further information, contact Julie Thompson, Head of Faculty Research Finance.
This web-based service allows you to monitor financial transactions within your research projects without the need to request specific reports from support staff.
As well as providing summaries of expenditure, budgets and commitments to date at overall and task level, the system also allows 'drill down' to individual transaction level, and includes a variety of filters which can be applied to avoid duplication of transaction review. All results can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
