From 1st October, we will be including a cost within all proposals.
Under a new Directly Allocated (DA) costing when a grant is awarded rather than it being included within Indirect costs; this aims to help achieve a more robust post award team and offer a long term flexible and responsive support structure within post award. Under the new structure Post Award support will be appropriately costed in Research Applications as a directly allocated pool admin cost. It will take a number of years for the DA costs to recover from awarded grants due to the lead times between applications and awards.
More information is available via the following document – Review of Post Award Support: Restructure and Funding Model..
Guidance for approvers is available here – Guidance doc (TBC).
