Transfer to MQ


The current Administering Institution (relinquishing institution) is responsible for submitting the transfer request to the funding body.

The lead Chief Investigator (CI) should notify Post-Award ( as soon as possible of their intent to transfer grant(s) to Macquarie University. Commencing the process before joining Macquarie will assist in minimizing delays that can occur with cross-institutional transfers of funding.

Post-Award staff will:

  • Create an official database record of the grant(s) to be transferred;
  • Seek confirmation from the Head of Department that they accept the transfer;
  • Organise a letter indicating that Macquarie University is willing to accept administration of the grant(s), signed by the DVC (Research) and sent to the relinquishing institution for on-forwarding to the funding body.

Once the funding body has approved the transfer, Post-Award will organise for the Office of Financial Services to open an account to enable the researcher to commence expending project funds at Macquarie University.
