Responding to the impact of COVID-19 — updated ARC Pre and Post Award Guidance now available

The ARC understands that these are challenging times for researchers and research administrators. While the ARC continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic situation very closely, administration of the National Competitive Grants Program (NCGP) continues across pre award grant application, peer review and post award activities — this is because the ARC understands it’s vital role to ensure continued delivery of grant funding outcomes that will support researchers in the recovery period and beyond.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and impact the research sector in various ways, and as a result there are now updated pre award and post award guidance on the ARC website. Acknowledging that COVID-19 is affecting researchers and the progress of research projects in a multitude of ways, the guidance provides options for researchers and administrators to consider in responding to the specific impact(s) on their project.

The ARC will continue to monitor the situation and update guidance and FAQs as required.
