Flinders Research NewsNew Flinders Research Budget Tool now available

Research Development and Support (RDS) are launching new budget tools to assist Flinders’ researchers prepare research budgets.  The first of these tools, for commissioned/contract research, or consultancies, is now available.

Hosted on the Flinders’ RDS website, this downloadable interactive tool systematically steps users through research budget considerations and construction.

Commissioned or contract research includes category 2 & 3 research such as request for tenders, quotes and other commissioned research. The budget is usually costed on commercial terms and research is often eligible (in full or part) for Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) purposes.

Consultancies include where individual staff are contracted to provide their expertise to a third party on commercial terms. Note that consultancies can also be counted as HERDC research income if it satisfies the definition of research.

A separate budget tool will be made available for tied /competitive grant research shortly. Development of these tools is one example of projects that are underway to provide simple, user-friendly resources and guides for the Flinders research community.

If you require assistance in preparing a budget using this Budget Tool, please contact your local College Research Support staff.

If you experience difficulties using the tool, or require technical assistance please contact the Research Grants Team.

 

Flinders Research NewsFederal Government supports recommendations from review of Defence Trade Control Act

The Federal Government has released the Independent Review of the Defence Trade Controls Act 2012 (the Review) along with its initial response outlining support for all nine recommendations.

The university-sector raised serious concerns with several of the proposed changes outlined in the Department of Defence’s submission to the Review. In particular, the proposal to control the supply or transfer of any technology, at any time, at the Department of Defence’s sole discretion.

The Review, established in April 2018 and conducted by Dr Vivienne Thom AM, aimed to “evaluate the operation of the DTC Act and deliver recommendations that ensure the Act is an effective component of Australia’s export control regime that appropriately addresses current and future national security requirements” (The Review, p19).

Flinders made a submission to the Review.

In a positive outcome for research, the Review acknowledged the “serious and legitimate concerns” held by the university sector.

The Review has recommended that gaps in the DTC Act be addressed through: a risk-based consideration of the technology; contain measures to ensure transparency and scrutiny of decisions; limit additional uncertainty and complexity, and; minimise any increased compliance costs.

The Federal Government has accepted this recommendation and will establish a working group, led by Dr Thom and to include representatives from the university sector, to develop practical, risk-based legislative changes to the DTC Act.

Both the Review and the initial Government response are available and can be accessed.

Please contact Julian Raeside, Defence Exports Officer, for further information on this and all matters related to Defence Export Controls.
