Awards Management Module (AMM) FAQs
You will only see data in the Awards Management area of Pure if you are listed as an investigator (PI or Co-I).
Please contact your local Research Services team who can advise you.
Application and award records are created by your local Research Support (RS) teams. If you have a project that is not appearing in Pure please contact your local RS team to discuss.
There are two ways to search applications, awards and projects records in Pure.
If you don’t know what type of record you’re looking for you can use the search bar in the top right hand corner of Pure. This search allows you to search across all record types in Pure. Here you can enter a title, partial title or ID.
If you do know what type of record you’re looking for, click on the corresponding record type (Application, Awards or Project) from the left hand menu. In the middle of the screen you will see a search bar that will only return results specific to the record type you have chosen. Here you can enter a title, partial title or ID.
Where an awarded project has had one or many amendments (financial or non-financial), these are shown as individual records in Pure, attached to the original award. Therefore you may see multiple award records with the same title, but these will refer to different activity.
The Projects menu in Pure lists all your projects. It can be accessed from the left hand side menu once you have logged into Pure. A guide explaining how to search for projects in Pure is available here. Project records can be made visible on your research profile if you are named as a PI or Co-I on the record.
Projects are editable and you can make any changes to them by opening up the Project record, making the edits and clicking the blue Save button.
Through the use of 'Project' pages in Pure, PIs and Co-Is can choose to showcase a particular research project, research group or specialism.
Project pages display via the University’s Research Explorer portal - https://www.research.manchester.ac.uk, which forms part of the University’s website.
Please see our dedicated Project page for more information.
It may be the case that whilst researchers have not been named as PI or Co-I on a research grant, they have made a significant contribution to the writing and development of the grant. For awarded grants, the role of 'grant contributor' can now be recognised. Researchers and/or their PIs can complete the Research Staff Grant Contribution Request Form to ensure that the researcher's 'grant contribution' role is recognised, added to the awarded Project record and made visible in the researcher's profile.
