- IRAMS is used to manage both JFF and other funds: the application form, PDF and approval process can be different for different funds
- More internal funding applications and awards are in one place
- Researchers from outside of the University can apply for funding schemes that permit it, but they will have to obtain a virtual access account (temporary single sign-on ID)
- Funding opportunities are advertised on divisional websites and the funding section of the Research Support website.
In 2017, divisional offices and Research Services worked with IT Services to deliver a purpose-built system for managing internal research funds and external grants with institutional quotas. Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS) supports grant application, selection and post-award management.
