In the UK, no single supplier produced IT System has been identified

which supports the management and administration of a University's research

program from pre-award through to post award. The requirements of UK higher

education research management and administration include program

management, costing and pricing, application development and submission,

contract and project administration, monitoring and reporting. UK universities

commonly use a mixture of spreadsheets and databases, working alongside

existing finance and administration systems to manage these activities.

This paper presents the scope and design of a modular Research

Management and Administration System for the UK higher education sector

which allows for the management and administration of research projects from

‘cradle to grave’. The system should embody best practice processes for

research management and administration, whilst maintaining the capability

[through open systems architecture] to interface with a University's existing

systems such as Finance, HR and Student systems.
