What do we do?

The post-award team is responsible for the administration of research funding and contract management. They offer support with administration of projects after research awards have been received, including:

  • advice on the terms and conditions of grant awards
  • formally accepting awards on behalf of the College
  • setting up project accounts on Oracle Grants Finance System
  • calculate the transfer of indirect costs to departments
  • raise purchase orders for research partners
  • maintaining budgets and budget amendments
  • costing and approving staff advertisements, appointments and contract extensions
  • preparation of financial statements and invoices for sponsors
  • support the audit and assurance process on awards where required
  • closing project accounts

For all queries relating to the creation and activation of new research award accounts on the grants system, please email rssetup.engineering@imperial.ac.uk

Please also see the Research office site for information and guidance relating to the administration of the College’s externally funded research portfolio.
