As part of its streamlining activities, the ARC has embarked on an update to RMS called RMS 2.0. The upgrade to RMS 2.0 will make for a more user friendly, robust and flexible grants management system.

A page on the ARC website has been dedicated to RMS 2.0 to provide the sector with current and upcoming information.

The main reasons for the update to RMS 2.0 are to:

  • ensure that the grants management process is handled by a robust, stable, and flexible platform
  • make improvements in response to the needs of researchers and research offices
  • meet Australian Government Web Content and Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • improve compliance with the Information Security Manual (ISM).

RMS 2.0 will go live on Thursday, 21 August 2014.

To access RMS 2.0, you will be required to login using your email address. To ensure that you can login to RMS 2.0, please check and update your details, especially your preferred email address, in the current version of RMS before 5:00pm AEST on 20 August 2014.

Any changes made to user profiles in the current version of RMS after 20 August 2014 will not be transferred into RMS 2.0.

Please visit the RMS 2.0 webpage on the ARC website for further information. Any new information about RMS 2.0 moving forward will also be placed on this webpage.
