Once the project has commenced it is critical that milestones are delivered on time and to the quality expected by the client or funder.
It is the Chief Investigators responsibility to notify Research Services as soon as a Milestone Deliverable has been met to initiate that process. Any potential delay in Milestone Delivery needs to be communicated to us at least one month in advance of the Milestone Due Date. This may require a variation to the contract and should be avoided if possible.
Delayed milestones can impact on the flow of project funding and the timeline of the research activity, which can have significant implications to the feasibility of the research project.
