Not reporting may affect your award or future funding, but you may be able to get an exemption.
Consequences of not reporting
If you do not submit complete and accurate reports about your funding award we may:
- stop you from being the principal investigator or a named co-investigator on any future UKRI funding
- suspend funding payments for your award.
These sanctions do not apply to doctoral students.
To learn more about what happens if you do not report, read the UKRI compliance and sanctions policy.
Ask for an exemption from reporting
You may ask for an exemption from reporting during the upcoming submission period if:
- you’re unable to submit reports because of poor health or other personal circumstances (for example, parental leave) during the submission period
- you’ve been working in an area without internet access during the submission period
- all known outcomes have been reported and you don’t expect to have more to report.
If any of these apply, ask your research administrator or manager to email us to ask for an exemption. We assess each exemption request on its own merit.
Research administrators or managers can also ask:
- to change the principal reporter for an award
- that reporting be closed for an award.
To ask for these exemptions and changes, they will need to read the guidance on Researchfish response codes.
