The Research Grants Management System (RGMS) is NHMRC's online system for lodging grant applications, managing the assessment of applications and managing grants once they are awarded.

RGMS has replaced Informed-Filler and NHMRC's former grants management system, Research Management Information System (RMIS).

Researchers use RGMS to lodge applications for all NHMRC funding schemes, except the NHMRC European Union Collaborative Health Research Grants.

Researchers who hold NHMRC grants will be able to manage their grants online using RGMS. All researchers involved in NHMRC's peer-review processes will also do this through RGMS.

Researchers need to populate the 'Profile' and 'CV' sections within RGMS and ensure it is kept up-to-date. RGMS automatically extracts relevant information into research funding applications and the CV can also be exported for other uses.

Access to RGMS is via the NHMRC website.
