Step 1: Funding Expression of Interest (FEOI)

Version 1.2 - July 2018

New simplified revamped form – replaces the GEOI

  • Compliance and Budget review is now optional for projects less than or equal to $100,000. Where a budget review is requested, the Budget Proforma must be used.
  • The Budget Proforma and compliance review is only compulsory for projects >$100,000.
  • Electronic authorisation will be accepted (email, e-signature)

To be used for external research funding applications such as grants, tenders, contracts, etc; whether or not FedUni is the lead organisation (excluding FedUni lead ARC/NHMRC see below).

The FEOI is a starting point to notify your Dean or nominee of your intention to progress with a research funding application.  It is to be signed by your Dean or nominee and submitted to the Research Funding Team as early as possible (min. 15 business days) to ensure that your funding application is registered and support can be organised. Once signed, please forward to for DVCRI approval prior to investing significant time in developing the full proposal.

Do not send this form directly to the DVCRI (unless this is a direct report) as it will be returned to you without approval.
