To obtain appropriate costing for a new project, researchers are required to fill out a Project Registration Form (PRF).

The PRF gathers information needed to accurately cost a proposal, in addition to information required to meet sector wide research governance demands.

The PRF is a spreadsheet document and should be opened using Microsoft Excel.

Please email completed form(s) as an attachment.
