Administering your funding agreement

Most research funding obtained will be governed via a funding agreement. Our Research Office will facilitate this on behalf of Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.

We must administer the funds for any health service staff who receive funding. This includes establishing a dedicated research cost centre to administer the funding.

Our Research Office can also help you develop financial reports for the acquittal of research funding (as required by the funder).
