Research Spend Reports (Power BI Portal)

All named project investigators and departmental project administrators (and those with research project access in ICIS), have access to the Research Spend Reports reporting portal, via Power BI. This gives information in the form of charts or tables about project spend against budget, as well as recent spend, upcoming commitment detail, staff charging and more.

The tool allows projects to be quickly assessed and prioritised. For example, projects can be viewed in order of those closest to their end dates or those with the highest remaining balances, and then queried individually in detail. The information is updated on a daily basis. 

For more information on using the portal, please see the Research Spend Reports Power BI Guidance.


Research Spend Reports access mirrors ICIS access i.e. only those projects which staff can view in ICIS can be viewed in the Research Spend Reports.

For any queries regarding which projects you can access, please consult your departmental finance and research team or the Research Services Administrator within your Research Support Team.

For any general queries about the Research Spend Reports please email the Research Spend Reports mailbox.


These dashboards are also available via mobile devices using free apps from the relevant store:
