Important note about automated eligibility management in RMS:

New functionality has been introduced into RMS to assist and improve application eligibility compliance in relation to final reports, project limits, and key CI and PI eligibility requirements. 

Eligibility checks are performed in RMS at various stages of the application submission process: whilst the form is being filled; on certification by the Administering Organisation; and at time of submission to the ARC.

Where RMS detects an eligibility issue, an application will not be able to proceed to the next submission stage in RMS.

While an application may pass eligibility checks when initially filled in, subsequent changes to RMS information may affect an individual’s eligibility.

As RMS will prevent applications with detected eligibility issues being submitted to the ARC, please allow adequate time to check and address any eligibility issues encountered at each stage of the application process.

The new eligibility checking functions are not exhaustive and the ARC will undertake eligibility checking after close of submission. It remains the responsibility of the researchers and Research Offices to comply with the grant guidelines.
