Accepting your offer

If you have been successful in a funding opportunity, we will send an email to your research development manager or officer.

They will then get the offer document through the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system.

The offer document tells you the:

  • amount the project has been awarded
  • earliest start and end dates of the project.

What you need to do next

Check that the details of the award match your application. If they do not match or your project has changed, contact the research council that is funding your award.

To get your funding and start your project, your research development manager or officer will need to accept the award through Je-S. They must do this within 10 working days of receiving the offer document.

They will then be sent a start confirmation document with the start date of your project. They must submit this through Je-S within 42 days of the date your project started.

Your funding award could end if they do not accept the award or submit the start confirmation.

Find out more about how to accept an award and submit the start confirmation in the Je-S handbook.
