Worktribe, the company responsible for producing the University’s pre-award/post-award research administration management system, releases 2 major versions of the application per year.

There is a requirement to keep within touching distance of the latest version in order that the University is able to take advantage of functionality which relates to key University business processes, e.g. leveraging performance and functional improvements, legislative changes, and increasing demand from research funders and our own researchers.

It is envisaged that the University will never be any more than one major release behind Worktribe’s schedule.

The scope of this project is to upgrade the University’s installation of Worktribe to v 2021.1 ensuring that it continues to operate as expected including:

  • Testing of processes adopted by the University
  • Testing of the Interfaces presenting data to Worktribe from Finance, HR, (People &  Money)and IDM
  • Testing of the outgoing interfaces between Finance (People & Money) and Worktribe
  • Testing of the external reporting solution (and the Worktribe BI Extract)
  • Testing of additional and/or enhanced functionality to the system
  • Refresh of data from LIVE into TEST
  • Refresh of data from LIVE into TEST
  • Upgrading WIKI pages and/or User Guidance

For awareness, it is also important to note that the supplier completes auto patching on a monthly basis.
