All research and commercial projects require some level of checks to ensure that the work can be performed within University and funder requirements. Some of these checks happen before a bid is submitted to the funder. Others can happen at the time of award notification.
- Due diligence on commercial funders and overseas research partners (UK Research & Innovation guidance).
- Ethics and GDPR check for projects involving people or data about people.
- Ensuring that externally funded projects have sufficient staffing and project costs to deliver the work.
- Any risks to the University for a particular piece of work
- Any conflict

and to unduly influence decisions for personal benefit and/or to the detriment
of the University
