ARC Submission Procedure

  • Please note that the Research Office is unable to provide advice on any grant or fellowship scheme after the Eligibility and Compliance Check period unless you have obtained a booking.

IF YOU DO REQUIRE AN ELIGIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE CHECK

IF YOU DO NOT REQUIRE AN ELIGIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE CHECK

1. Booking must be made within the allocated Eligibility and Compliance Check Period for each scheme

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

1. The Research Office is unable to provide advice on any grant or fellowship scheme after the Eligibility and Compliance Check period unless an Eligibility and Compliance Check was completed.

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.

 

3. Feedback will be provided by email to the CI by the Research Office within 3 working days.

4. By 5pm on the UON Deadline for Final Application date for the relevant scheme, you are required to ‘Submit to Research Office’ your final, submission-ready application in RMS and all associated documentation (e.g Cover Sheet and CI/PI/Organisation Certifications/Written Evidence) forwarded through to research-applications@newcastle.edu.au
