New TRAC guidance that applies from 2014-15 has now been published. This is hosted on the HEFCE web site on behalf of all funders. The current TRAC requirements continue to apply for TRAC reporting for the year ending 31 July 2014, but once the 2013-14 TRAC reporting is complete, the HEFCE web site will become the sole resource for TRAC as well as financial sustainability materials.

TRAC Helpdesk

The TRAC Development Group (TDG) has appointed KPMG to provide the Support Unit function for TRAC, taking over from JM Consulting and Funding Councils. This change was effective from 19th April 2010.

The Support Unit's principle responsibilities include:

  • Provision of the TRAC Helpdesk (covering all aspects of the TRAC guidance, annual TRAC, TRAC(T) and TRAC EC-FP7);
  • Policy research and support to the Financial Sustainability Strategy Group and the TRAC Development Group; TRAC Guidance research and development;
  • Communication with the sector on TRAC;
  • Support for the TRAC Self Help groups; and
  • Promulgation of TRAC amongst the sectors' stakeholders.

Stephen Clark and Andrew Bush from KPMG have worked across the sector and with the Funding and Research Councils for a number of years on a variety of TRAC matters. Stephen and Andrew lead the support function for KPMG, supported by a small dedicated team.
