We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Joint Units and Services

A range of common business services are already provided to UKRI partners via joint business units. A number of these units also provide services to external customers.

The current joint units in alphabetical order are:

  • Joint Building and Office Services (JBOS)
    This unit is responsible for ensuring that health and safety and other relevant legislation is implemented to ensure that the Polaris House site offers a healthy and safe environment for all employees, visitors and contractors.
  • Joint Reprographics Service (JRS)
    JRS provides an in-house reprographic service for Polaris House, based in Swindon. The unit offers a wide range of services to staff including design, copying, printing and finishing.
  • Joint Superannuation Service (JSS)
    JSS administer the Research Councils’ Pension Scheme (RCPS). The Scheme is operated by analogy to the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme.
