Tied Research Funds Policy


Staff members are encouraged to secure external research funding in support of their research and the University's strategic vision. Funding is often subject to an Agreement with the Funding Body, and requires the University to meet specific obligations. Research funds secured in this way are designated as research Tied Funds. The purpose of this Policy is to provide a clear statement of the University's expectations, requirements and practices for the management of research Tied Funds.


This Policy should be read in conjunction with the Fraud and Corruption Control Policy: https://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/2803/
