To make a booking for an eligibility and compliance check for an ARC Grant scheme, you need a valid RMS Application ID for an application that has UON listed as the Administering Institution.

Please note: An Application ID will only secure one booking and cannot be used to make multiple bookings for the same application.

Online Booking System

Please note; your application will not receive any form of check prior to submission to the ARC and you as the lead CI are responsible for the Eligibility of your application.

2. By 9am on the date of the booking, you are required to ‘Submit to the Research Office’ your ARC application in RMS.

Please note; RMS requires all tabs within your application to be ‘Green’ in order for the ‘Submit to the Research Office’ button to be enabled. This requires all sections to be complete and all the required pdf. documents to be uploaded.
