**New process for requesting the ARC to review an Assessment:

During the Rejoinder period, the participants and Research Office staff may identify an assessment that contains inappropriate elements, as detailed below, and may wish to have this reviewed by the ARC.

To request the ARC to review an assessment, an ARC Assessment Review Request form (PDF Format - Word Format) must be submitted through the Research Office of the Administering Organisation. The form must be received within 3 days after opening of the Rejoinder period for all NCGP schemes with the exception of Linkage Projects where the form is to be received within 2 working days from the Rejoinder opening due to the nature of the scheme.

  • For NCGP schemes other than Linkage Projects, this means, if Rejoinders open on the Wednesday, forms must be received by COB Friday.
  • For Linkage Projects, if Rejoinders open on the Wednesday, forms must be received by COB Thursday. 

Criteria that may be considered by the ARC for review: 

  • Defamatory comment/s
  • Evidence of assessor conflict
  • Discriminatory/biased comments
  • Brief assessment text (less than 50 words)
  • Scores included within the assessment text
  • Assessment text does not match with application
  • Comments in the assessment regarding application eligibility
  • Comments in the assessment regarding the National Interest Test statement (not applicable in all schemes)
  • Comments in the assessment regarding Research Output display errors.

Internal Deadline 

The internal deadline for submission of grant applications is required to the GMO prior to the external deadline and by the internal deadline. This timeframe allows for your Grants Officer to review for eligibility, compliance and ensure your proposal complies with UNSW policies and sponsor requirements and allows time for amendments when required. For application and submission support, notify the Grants Management Office (GMO) of your intent to apply as soon as possible.

Research Management System (RMS)

RMS is a web-based system used to prepare and submit research applications, assessments and rejoinders for all Australian Research Councils Grant Programs. Registered users can login in using your email address and password at https://rms.arc.gov.au. To request a new account, go to https://rms.arc.gov.au and click on the Request New Account link.
