Welcome to the Help Desk for Program and Project Grants!

1. Purpose

This Help Desk is designed to assist EIDR, Balik PhD and PCARI awardees in any procurement concern that they may have related to their research projects. It also serves as a venue for the interactive discussion of procurement concerns for R&D. 

2. Procurement

To better help you, we have made available on this page a copy of the procurement process for the different modes of procurement, and the forms researchers need to accomplish relative to procurement for R&D. These are the files that can be downloaded:
