Institutions that receive NHMRC funding are required to be approved as an Administering Institution.
All grants funded by the NHMRC are offered in accordance with the Funding Agreement or a Deed of Agreement between the NHMRC and the Administering Institution.
Key reponsibilities when administering NHMRC grants

Under the Funding Agreement and Deeds of Agreement, Administering Institutions must meet clearance requirements and obtain and maintain the necessary approvals for the duration of the Funding Period.
Use of NHMRC grant funds
Under the Funding Agreement and Deeds of Agreement, grant funds must only be spent on the Direct Costs of Research and for the purposes of the peer reviewed, approved research.
In accordance with the Funding Agreement and Deeds of Agreement all Administering Institutions are required to submit financial reports for each funded grant.
Progress and Final Reporting
Reports are to be completed by the Specified Personnel and are to be submitted by Administering Institutions for each funded grant.
Where there is a need to change the approved funding proposal, such as extending the Funding Period or transferring the administration of an NHMRC funded grant to a new Administering Institution and/or supervisor, a request for grantee variation is required to be submitted to NHMRC.
