The scope of this project is to analysis the REF 2021 data requirements to inform further scope to extract and load data from existing systems into long term, accessible storage solutions, with potential to include from the Edinburgh Data Warehouse.

The focus is on HR and finance data held primarily in Oracle and E-Financials. It also includes contractual information stored in Sharepoint on staff contracts. The latter will reach its retention period for certain staff before the REF2021 submission date and audit period thus a longer-term storage solution is required until REF audit period has passed.

This scope is focussed on data needs that relate directly to academic staff; research grants; and other aspects of the submission that are dependent on data derived from staff or meta-data about academic staff or grants in order to identify the data for submission.

Other aspects of data required for REF2021 are not in scope, for example data relating to impact case studies which is not directly related to staff members.
