The NHMRC scheduled maintenance window is from 6am to 9am every Tuesday and Thursday morning. Access to RGMS may not be possible during this time.
Where system outages occur outside the maintenance window, NHMRC will issue an RAO alert, place notices on the RGMS login page and broadcast on Twitter (@NHMRC).
How do I get an RGMS account?
New RGMS accounts can be requested by accessing the RGMS login page. Select the ’New to RGMS’ link and follow the prompts on-screen.
It is time for RGMS account holders to update their profiles and CVs in RGMS. Approximately 50% of users currently have incomplete profiles, with important data missing from relevant fields.
Information of particular importance is indicated by a red asterisk in RGMS such as ‘title’, ‘institution’ and ‘research keywords’. NHMRC is also investigating options to prompt the completion of key fields, including making completion a pre-requisite for all applications.
Profile and CV information forms a critical part of funding applications, is crucial to identifying reviewers, and enables quick and accurate assignment to grant review panels. NHMRC also relies on this information to contact and inform users, including for funding announcements, system messages and grant administration purposes.
More information is available from the Research Help Centre.

The Research Grants Management System is the NHMRC’s new grants administration, reporting and awarded grants system. RGMS replaces NHMRC’s previous Research Management Information System (RMIS) and various satellite systems.
RGMS allows users to:
- submit and manage grant applications online and
- maintain a Curriculum Vitae (CV)
RGMS also supports the assessment and peer review processes through dedicated reporting and workflow functions.
RGMS provides important functionality for the Office of the NHMRC. It improves access to information about the outputs and impact of Australian Government health and medical research funding and streamlines administrative process across all granting schemes.
RGMS is built using ‘Clarity’, a CA (formally known as Computer Associates) web-enabled project and portfolio management system being used by various Australian Government departments and agencies.
NHMRC welcomes all constructive feedback on your experience using RGMS.
