Variations occur when a successful grant needs modification from the original project agreement.
For instance, personnel may withdraw, you may experience delays which prevent timely completion of project milestones or the expenditure of funds within the award period. To discuss a variance to the conditions of an internal award please contact the grants officer responsible for that award.
Extensions to a project end date will only be considered in exceptional circumstances, with a maximum extension of six months unless otherwise specified in the funding guidelines. Requests must be approved by the chief investigator’s head of department and submitted to the Research, Innovation and Commercialisation (RIC) at least one month prior to the project end date.
