Awards Management Training

Research & Enterprise Development staff will run training sessions for the Awards Management System every Wednesday from 2pm, Enterprise Meeting Room 2.

The Lincoln Awards Management System (AMS) will replace the current research, educational and consultancy project (proforma) approval process. Designed by academics, for academics, AMS is much more than the system it replaces and provides an integrated project development, approval and management tool.

AMS has been designed specifically forLincolnwith ease of use the first principal of development. It makes the process of developing, submitting and managing a successful project effective and efficient.

A few examples of this are:-

  • Staff costings are automatically calculated for you based on the parameters you enter into the system.
  • You can now see where your project is in the approval cycle.
  • There is an area to upload your documents associated with the project, so all your information is readily available in one place.
  • On successful bids, you can monitor your actual spend against your budget. This is real time information extracted from the Agresso system.
  • You can set yourself milestones which will automatically alert you with reminders about when they are due, stopping missed deadlines within the project.
  • Project leads will have the ability to customise their own searches for their management information.

The new system will not reduce the support Research & Enterprise Development will provide to project development, but it will allow you to tailor this support to your needs.
