Manage a grant online using eGMS
Cancer Research UK's electronic Grants Management System (eGMS) can be used by applicants to apply for funding and also by those who are currently funded by Cancer Research UK and host institution administrators, to carry out post-award grant management tasks.
All current Cancer Research UK post-award grant management processes are now carried out in eGMS.
The list below gives a few examples of grant management processes that are carried out in eGMS:
Before a grant award letter can be sent out, both the lead applicant and the host institution administrator need to accept Cancer Research UK's terms and conditions. Once an award has been accepted, it can be activated.
Before a project can begin, the lead applicant must submit the 'activate award task' which is done through eGMS.
Grant award letters are no longer sent through the post. Grant award letters can be viewed by both the grantee and by the host institution administrators.
Financial reconciliation forms are now processed through eGMS. These forms will be available in the system within a month after the award has started.
Equipment claim forms are now processed through eGMS, and administrators are able to upload invoices on the system.
Administrators are able to view all payments that are due from Cancer Research UK to their institution in eGMS.
Scientific milestone reports are processes through eGMS. The lead applicant will be emailed informing them that they need to submit a scientific milestone report (with a clear deadline by which the form needs to be submitted). The grantee will be able to download the form that needs to be completed. This can only be submitted if the grantee has confirmed which of their publications are attributable to Cancer Research UK funding.
The lead applicant will be informed when a final report is due for completion within eGMS. This can only be submitted if the lead applicant has confirmed which of their publications are attributable to Cancer Research UK funding.
