We are fast approaching the end of 2023.
BU will be lightly staffed across all Departments from the start of Dec 2023 to mid-Jan 2024, including approvers being on leave over various times within that date range. This range includes BU’s closure period.
For matters that need a Contract Authorisation Form (CAF) from Legal Services and Finance, applications can now only be taken for submissions with a deadline after 19 January 2024.
Bids requiring a CAF are notably tenders and calls by Innovate UK.
A CAF is also required for anything requiring legal commitment at submission stage.
We wish you a very Merry Festive period.
