New Process for Core-Funded Departmental Posts
If you are involved with recruiting or requesting contract variations for staff who are funded by core departmental codes (i.e. those beginning with a number or with the letter 'M'), the Faculty of Science has implemented a new pre-approval process. Please be advised you do not need to follow the below process if your request is funded by work orders - starting with the letters R,C,E,G,H,A,N.
The new pre-approval process comes into effect immediately and if you wish to advertise a new core funded departmental post or ask for a contract variation e.g. contract extension, change in hours etc you must gain Faculty approval using the google forms below before submitting the online Contract Variation or Vacancy Request form.
Form: Grade 2 - Grade 5
Form: Grade 6+
Further information and an FAQ is available under forms and templates.
Changes to ordering on the Stores Credit Cards
The way you place requests for orders to be paid for using a Biology Departmental Credit Card is changing from 1 August 2021.
The introduction of YEP2 has created some complications in the way we process these requests, so it was a chance to review the whole process.
You no longer need to submit a requisition via YEP2/Agresso so instead please use the Google Form linked below. Also linked via the Biology Finance and Stores webpages.
On this form, you fill in the details of what you want to order, where from, work order and all the relevant information for Supplies and Goods Services (Stores) to be able to place and pay for your order.
Please ensure purchase requests adhere to the University procurement regulations and that you have the budget holder’s approval.
