Transitional arrangements for grant reporting activities – updated November 2022

NHMRC has migrated basic grant data from RGMS to Sapphire as part of the transition for grant management from RGMS to Sapphire. Additional data will be migrated to Sapphire as outlined on Sapphire Help under 'Select and Post Award'.

RGMS is no longer available.

Overdue milestones

NHMRC is aware that several grants migrated from RGMS to Sapphire are showing incorrect overdue milestones in Sapphire. This is due to a system error, which will be addressed in upcoming system updates to remove all incorrect overdue milestones. These incorrect milestone flags will have no impact on application submission or eligibility assessment for upcoming Grant Opportunities.

MREA Scientific Reports (Progress and Final reports) can be submitted in Sapphire for all grants where this would have been done using RGMS. Information on submitting Final Reports and Progress Reports can be found on Sapphire Knowledge Base.

MRFF Reports are to continue to be submitted offline to mrff.postaward@nhmrc.gov.au using the templates available on Scientific reporting.

For non-financial reports all original due dates remain unless agreed on a case-by-case basis. Information on financial reports submission is on the Financial Reporting page.
