Bid Development Procedure Revised

We have recently revised and updated the university’s bid development procedure.

This document provides a set of procedures to ensure proposals to external funders are of the highest quality and that the financial, reputational and capacity implications have been considered prior to submission.

(Please note, a ‘bid’ refers to any form of proposal for external funding. This includes grant proposals, tenders, and business plans to deliver research and knowledge exchange activity, including consultancy and CPD.)

The revisions include:

  • recommended internal deadlines to ensure adequate time for internal approval processes (page 2)
  • holding a project set-up meeting if bids are successful, to enhance project management (page 7)

The procedure document also gives guidance on the peer review process and includes the Peer Review Template.

The revised document is available from the RED web pages here: CCCU Bid Development Procedure

If you have any questions or would like to know more, please contact your RKE Development Manager.
