Brief Introduction Of Progress Report Sample
The purpose of these reports is to inform the Corporation of:
 progress against agreed milestones and the significance and implications of theresearch to date
 problems that could influence the conduct and outcomes of the project and that mayrequire mutually agreed modification of the workplan and budget and
opportunities for new projects, workshops, media releases, the protection of intellectual property, commercialisation etc.The information provided allows the Corporation to consider both opportunities and problems arising from the research project and will be the primary benchmark used byresearch managers to check that the project is on track. Scheduled payments each year aredependent on the annual progress report being assessed as satisfactory by the researchmanager.
Timing
Reporting dates are as specified in Schedule 6 of the Research Agreement. Reports mustreach the Corporation by the agreed reporting date and should be completed in
Clarity
whether the milestones have been achieved or not.The Corporation may withhold funding for a given project:
when a report is not received by the due date
when satisfactory progress does not appear to have been made
when significant changes to the workplan and budget need to be agreed.To avoid delays in payment, early warning should be given when it appears likely that anagreed milestone cannot be achieved on time.
