Project Assurance

The Project Assurance team provides support to academic staff and other RaISE teams to enable academic projects to be developed and delivered within a risk-managed framework.  This team brings together legal services and research integrity.

Its specific roles are:

  • To draft, negotiate and approve contracts on behalf of the University
  • To sponsor standalone contracts which require no development work
  • To support the Faculties in securing external legal support for complex projects
  • Provide, advise and implement the University’s framework for regulatory compliance for research projects
