Am I using the correct reporting process?

The Evaluation, Strategy and Analysis team will contact all grant holders prior to the end of their grant to outline details of which reporting process to use.

Not all ESRC grants use the standard reporting process. There are alternative reporting requirements for large research investments (research centres, programmes/initiatives, networks and large grants) and some other ESRC grants, such as Postdoctoral Fellowships and ESRC Studentship awards.

To avoid following the wrong process, grant holders should read the relevant guidance on evaluating individual projects. If still in doubt, contact the Evaluation, Strategy and Analysis team on 01793 413112 or email

Grant holders should take care to comply with the specific reporting requirements set out in their contracts. If you are in any doubt, please contact your ESRC case officer in the first instance.
