Monash Uni taps UNIT4 for research management project

Monash University has contracted UNIT4 to provide software for an overhaul of its research management processes.

The Netherlands’ UNIT4 will provide its Agresso Research Costing and Pricing, Agresso Award Management and Agresso Project Costing and Billing applications for the project.

Monash University handles research grants and contracts totalling around $300 million annually, and needed a system to help better manage the costing, billing and grant management processes.

Monash University CIO Dr Ian Tebbett said the university selected UNIT4 for the contract because it was one of the few vendors that could meet its requirement of providing software to manage the full spectrum of research-related processes.

“Research-intensive institutions have historically struggled with the complexity of proper management processes,” he said. “Few solutions exist on the market that can meet requirements end to end.”

UNIT4 COO Ab van Marion added that the company and Australian education and research partner S1 Consulting will also provide strategic advice to Monash University to support its ambitions of becoming one of the strongest research universities in the world.
