Completing the section on the Je-S System:

Select Add New Other Directly Allocated Costs Item

A new screen will open.

Select from the drop down list on the right hand side of the Description Box. There are three options:

Pool Staff Costs: Costs for research, technical, administrative and other support staff, whose costs are not included in the estates or indirect costs and whose time is shared across several projects or activities and will not be supported by an auditable record. The need for these resources (but not the basis of costing) must be justified in the Case for Support/Justification of Resources.

Infrastructure Technicians: Infrastructure technicians do not require justification in the Case for Support. Costs should be based on Investigator/Researcher FTE being requested

Other: Any other resources that will be used by the project but will be shared by other projects/activities and will be charged to the project on the basis of estimates rather than actual costs.   

Amount: Enter the total cost (numeric)

The need for these resources (but not the basis of costing) must be justified in the attachment “Justification of Resources”

Exception: STFC – must be justified in the Case for Support
