pFACT (Project Financial, Accounting and Costing Tool) is the software programme used by the University of Sunderland to calculate the full economic cost (fEC) of any project. A pFACT should be set up for every research funding application in advance of the submission.

The pFACT process provides institutional approval to go ahead with your submission
pFACT forms are important in managing expectations. The University does approve research projects that do not cover their FEC – but it is vital that the relevant people are aware in advance of the financial commitments that will be required
pFACT is accessible via Citrix
