Step 1: Funding Expression of Interest (FEOI)

Version 1.5 - Jan 2020

This update includes the following changes:

  • Tick box to confirm the current HERDC Specifications have been read
  • Removal of 'email verification' to avoid confusion.  Note that either written or electronic signatures are accepted on all Research Funding internal forms.

This form is to be used for external research funding applications such as grants, tenders, contracts, etc; whether or not Federation Uni is the lead organisation (excluding Federation Uni 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.
