The JRMO works to a set of Joint Research Management Policies [PDF 831KB]
These Policies were most recently reviewed in full in 2016 but a new policy, covering Research Misconduct, was added in November 2018 when a related SOP was also agreed.

- Efficiency within policy-making by creating a common set of policies to be adopted and ratified by the respective management boards;
- Establishment of a common set of principles to provide consistency for researchers working in both organisations; and,
- Collaboration to ensure clear and consistent standards for research work, and drawing on respective strengths.
The policies are designed to ensure there is clear guidance for research managers and research staff in relation to requirements issued in the following main documents:
