Transitional arrangements for grant reporting activities – updated April 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 the Sapphire Help page under ‘Select and Post Award’.
RGMS users are no longer be able to access RGMS
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 an upcoming system update 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 the Sapphire Knowledge Base.
For non-financial reports all original due dates remain unless agreed on a case-by-case basis. Extensions have been granted for financial reports pending Sapphire financial reporting capability.
