Information for Institutions reporting on compliance against the NHMRC Funding Agreement.

Administering Institutions are required to submit, via RGMS, an Institutional Annual Compliance Report (IACR) to NHMRC each year detailing compliance with the NHMRC Funding Agreement and other relevant policies for the previous calendar year. 

ALL Administering Institutions must submit a report. If your Institution did not administer NHMRC funds during the reporting calendar year, a report must still be submitted. You will only need to answer a question addressing the fact you did not administer NHMRC funds.

Questions and Due Date

The questions asked may change from year to year, depending on the current focus of compliance monitoring. The responses received in IACRs are also used by NHMRC to better understand Administering Institutions' perspectives and to inform NHMRC's management of the matters covered. 

The IACR is due each year on 30 April. Failure to complete the report by the due date may result in delays to NHMRC making the scheduled monthly grant payments to the Administering Institution. 

For reference, a PDF version of the report questions is available from the Institutional Annual Compliance Report page, however, reports MUST be completed and submitted online using RGMS. 

Instructions on how to submit the report are available in the RGMS User Guide - Grant Administration on the RGMS Training Program page.
