Step 4: Funding Establishment Form (FEF)

Version 1.0 - February 2018

Upon notification of successful funding this form must be completed.

A research project code cannot be established without receipt of this form, full execution of funding agreements or other documents as required.

For funding over $100,000 the project Budget Proforma will also need to be revised and resubmitted prior to the account being established.

Once the FEF is received, Research Services will:

  • Arrange for the acceptance of grant from the external funding body
  • Facilitate the Contract/Agreement execution through Legal Services
  • Negotiate the completion of a Multi-Institution Agreement or Collaboration Agreement if applicable
  • Using the project budget information, request the creation of a Research Project Code from Research Finance
  • Check for external legislative requirements eg. Export controls, Ethics, BioSafety, HIRAC, etc.
  • Refer any scholarship/s through to Graduate Studies for establishment
  • Notify Marketing and Media for promotional purposes
  • Update internal systems, including setting reporting and financial milestone prompts.
