Requesting a change to project dates, activity, or budget

Requesting a change to project dates, activity, or budget

If you need to make a change to your project due to unforeseen circumstances or a new opportunity that arises, you must contact us before committing to any changes. This includes an extension to the end of project date as confirmed at the time of accepting your award or proposals to change the activity or budget as set out in your original application. You can update us in your next progress report or, if you need an answer before your report is due, get in touch with your designated point of contact or any member of the Grants Team on grants@museumsgalleriesscotland.org.uk. All requests must be made in writing, but if you want to discuss options with us first, please call us on 0131 550 4115. 

You do not need to contact us if the changes are not material, e.g., purchasing a different piece of equipment because you’ve found a better option than the item included in your original budget or changing the venue or date for a proposed activity within the original time frame. But if you are proposing any change that has a potential impact on the outputs or outcomes of your project, you must agree that with us as soon as possible. We will always try to be flexible but need to understand the full impact of any changes before agreeing. We will confirm in writing once a decision has been made. 

It is a condition of all awards that you inform Museums Galleries Scotland of any potential delays to your project, any financial changes or any other matters arising that will affect your ability to carry out the project as described in your application. Unauthorised changes may result in the grant being withdrawn.
