The Australian Research Council (ARC) have advised that they must now publish Grant Guidelines (formerly known as Funding Rules) for all schemes under the ARC’s National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP), on GrantConnect. GrantConnect is the Australian Government’s whole-of-government grant information system.
Note that the ARC—as a non-corporate Commonwealth entity— may no longer publish Grant Opportunities and Grant Opportunity Guidelines documentation on their own website.
In order to access all available grant information, new users of GrantConnect are required to set up an account with a username and password. Once an account is set up, users can receive notification of all new Commonwealth Australian grant opportunities, relevant to their interests, as they are published or updated.
ARC Centre of Excellence Guidelines
Commencing with the ARC Centre of Excellence 2020 Grant Guidelines, all new ARC Grant Guidelines will only be published on GrantConnect. Links to GrantConnect will be available on relevant pages of the ARC website and a GrantConnect login will be required to access the new guidelines.
Research Services have made the ARC Centre of Excellence Guidelines available on the Research Services website.
ARC’s Research Management System (RMS)
The ARC’s Research Management System (RMS) will continue to be used to prepare and submit research proposals, assessments and rejoinders for the NCGP. Grant award data will also remain available in RMS in order to retain the end-to-end grant process, as well as provide longitudinal data.
Links and documents on the University of Adelaide Research Services website will be progressively updated with the above information in the near future.
