Information For Users Of The Service Catalogue

The University IT Service Catalogue will be decommissioned in the Summer of 2021. This website is no longer being maintained.

The Impact Repository is a bespoke Sharepoint system developed by University Information Services (UIS) to provide departments with a system for them to upload documents related to impact post the REF2014 submission.

The system is not directly linked to the REF, but it is likely that much of the content added over the next few years will be used to support the preparations for REF2020.
