Who are you aiming for next, the Leverhulme people?
PeterT, Euphloozie and I are meeting tomorrow about a bid to JISC. The next JISC deadline is about 10 days away - which is pretty tight because big grant applications have to wend their way past many people in a big institution like the Open University. Somebody has to check that we've worked out a sensible budget and not forgotten that we need to pay National Insurance or something like that. Somebody has to check that it looks like a sensible research proposal. Somebody has to check that the staff aren't already fully committed on something else. Somebody has to check that none of the thousands of other staff at the Open University has put in a bid for the same money. All that takes at least a week, as the paperwork gets passed from person to person. Still, our bit (the actual bid) is pretty much written.

Not to mention the lovely e-form you have to fill in - most of which doesn't make sense, nor was it applicable to most aspects of the proposal i recently wrote! Don't you love bureaucracy?!
