The Ministerial projects Committee aims to facilitate the implementation of the Deputy for Education (MoHME) projects. Proposals recommended by the Deputy for Education and senior educational managers are approved in this committee.
For approval, the principal investigator must upload the confirmation letter from the Deputy for Education (MoHME) and the proposal on the NASR Research System. Proposals approved by senior educational managers must also have this confirmation letter.
This committee accepts full proposals (principal investigators can download the form from NASR website).
Call for proposal date:
This committee receives researcher’s proposal during the final week of every season.
The process of review is faster in this committee and involves only a single scientific review. If the proposal passes this step, it is reviewed in the Cost Review Committee and the outcome is communicated to the principal investigator.
After the cost review, proposals are presented by the Deputy of Research to the NASR Supreme Council, and endorsed proposals are approved.
Finalization: After approval, the proposal enters the finalization step where it is modified by the principal investigator.
After finalization, the contract is prepared by the Research Unit and emailed to the principal investigator. The principal investigator prints out and signs the contract and posts it to NASR. The Head of NASR then signs the contract which then enters the implementation phase.
After the contract is drawn up with the principal investigator, the first installment (fund) is drafted by the Research Unit and notified to the Financial Unit. The next installments are computed and paid based on the progress of the project as determined by the project supervisor. Note that all payments are subject to a 5% tax and 10% deposit. All payments are notified to the principal investigator via text messages and emails.
Completion of the project:
When principal investigators present the final report of their projects, as approved by the NASR Managers Council, they have 18 months to meet their commitments by sending the necessary documents and concluding the project. After the documents are sent and approved by the Deputy for Research, the sum guaranteeing the proper completion of the work is paid to the executive and the project is recorded a complete piece of work.
Project implementation certificate: After the project is completed, a project completion certificate is issued and emailed to the principal investigator and collaborators.
