JISC funding postponement

HEFCE has received a funding letter from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to explain that its future funding will be significantly reduced. Consequently HEFCE has asked JISC to postpone any capital funded invitations to tender (ITT) or grant funding calls for which grant letters have not yet been issued until after the HEFCE board meeting on 28 January 2010.

The capital funded ITTs and calls that have already been announced and which are affected by this announcement are:

  • Managing research data Grant Funding Call 14/095
  • Developing community content Grant Funding Call 13/096: the postponement relates to strand 2 of this call only, please note that strand 1 of this call is unaffected.

Other planned but as yet unannounced capital funded ITTs and calls are also to be postponed and JISC will also be revising its current roadmap to reflect these changes.

If you have questions about whether a bid to an ITT or call you are working on at the moment is affected by this announcement, please email:  funding@jisc.ac.uk
