RKE Project Set-up Meetings

In response to a need for more support in running RKE projects at CCCU, we’ve recently introduced a new process to help.

When you hear that your project has been successful in securing funding, we’ll arrange a project set-up meeting to discuss what you need to do next and help answer any questions you might have.    Items on the agenda will include: ethics; legal and contract arrangements; finances; recording and reporting; recruitment of staff; marketing; impact; project management; evaluation and sustainability.

We’ll invite key people who can help answer your questions, including: the RKEDM who helped develop your funding application; your management accountant for financial queries; and Eileen Terry (RKE Projects Manager) for general advice and support.  Others will be invited depending on the nature and scale of the project.

This should help you follow correct procedures and enable your project to run smoothly.

If you have any other questions or want to know more about managing RKE projects at CCCU, please contact Eileen Terry, RKE Projects Manager. You can also find out more about project management support on the RED web pages.
