Over the duration of a project changes in circumstances may necessitate a Variation of the Funding Agreement (VFA) or a Partner/Participating Organisation Agreed Contribution Report (POACR).

VFAs and POACRs must be requested through the Research Office of the Administering Organisation. Requests must be submitted via RMS by Research Office staff.

Research Office instructions for completing and submitting a VFA and/or POACR.

For a select number of variations, that cannot be processed via RMS, the following form must be submitted to the ARC for processing. For full details please refer to the Research Office instructions for completing and submitting a VFA and/or POACR.

Please note: For Variations to Centres Projects, please refer to the Funding Agreement for full details on required documentation

All variations using the above form must be submitted via email to ARC-Postaward[@]arc.gov.au. Please do not submit a variation request without a completed form. Please also note that the ARC does not answer hypothetical questions in relation to Variation of Funding Agreement requests.
