Costings and Consents Worksheet (CCW)
A University of Otago Costings and Consents Worksheet (CCW) is required for all applications, signed by the applicant, their Head of Department/Resource Centre and their Dean/PVC, in accordance with University policy on externally-funded research. Please use the latest version which can be downloaded from the Research and Enterprise forms and guidelines repository:
For advice on the use of the CCW to develop costings for your project, please contact your Research Advisor.
The University Policy Document on Externally Funded Research outlines both the need for and the usage of the CCW.
Staff are reminded that every application for external research funding must come through Research and Enterprise, via your Research Advisor. If you are not sure, please contact Research and Enterprise who will be able to advise you. All grant applications and proposals should be submitted by academic staff. Please inform your Research Advisor if you intend to apply as Principal Investigator for any contestable funding, whether advertised here or not, at the beginning of the development of your application. Similarly if you have been approached by researchers at another institution/organisation to collaborate on a funding proposal where Otago is not the lead institution and/or is not submitting the proposal.
