Finch comes into effect 1 April 2013 and the largest institutions in UK HE have been given their funding amounts. Many are still working out how these funds will be managed & processed at their institutions. Requires libraries/librarians to work with new internal constituents within their institutions. Many libraries still unclear over the role they will play. Funding from Wellcome Trust requires an intermediary payment processor throughout the world for the grants it provides. This is why JISC will be using a 3 rd party payment processing manager: OAK.
