Research Design Service Terms and conditions
The Research Design Service will only provide advice if an advice request meets the eligibility criteria set out in the RDS Charter.
We take every care to provide accurate and up-to-date information and advice through our advice service, website, publications or any other service we provide, however the information we provide is subject to change and we cannot guarantee its correctness or completeness at any given time. We cannot guarantee the accuracy and appropriateness of the advice given by our service, although every effort is made to ensure high quality up-to-date advice is provided.
Although every reasonable effort will be made, we cannot guarantee advice to be given by a particular deadline, such as a funding deadline or within a particular timeframe.
Every effort will be made to provide advice where eligible. However we may not have the capacity to support applications in the timeframe required and reserve the right to prioritise advice giving under these circumstances.
