The QNRF Grant Management System is designed to help investigators and research administrators meet the compliance requirements of the grants awarded within QNRF funding programs. The system controls all aspects of the post-award phase of the grants - from the grant start date, through monitoring of the progress of the research to payment of installments and subsequent monitoring of outcomes. Totally based on an IT solution, the QNRF Grant Management System allows real-time interaction of individual investigators, centers, schools, colleges and universities with their grants and supports the awarded organisation’s need to adapt to any change.
The Grant Management System tracks information such as the grant period and deadline, grant status and information regarding key investigators as well as task performance, effort and financial activities.
In addition, the system includes compliance monitoring (IRB, IACUC, IBC, and more) proposal development and change at any given time of the grant duration. It also maintains schedules for Progress Report due dates and compliance expiration dates. Reporting functions include features that track when project reports are due, when projects are ending and the status of any submitted report. Awarded investigators can also view their past activities and previously submitted reports.
For the investigators and research administrators, QNRF’s Grant Management System electronic interface provides for day-to-day project management, allowing them to produce reports and request changes to the grants, such as changes to the research team or no-cost time extensions and so on. The system is accessible from anywhere, online, at the following link: https://qnrfsubmission.info
QNRF’s Grant Management System also contains sophisticated workflow technology that automatically forwards the activities/requests to the approval authorities, as described in the QNRF Award Administration Guide, which investigators and research administrators are highly encouraged to review as it provides a detailed description of the approval responsibilities, as well as the system itself.
