NHMRC’s Research Grants Management System (RGMS) is approaching the end of its useful life and is being replaced by a new grants management solution, Sapphire.

As part of this transition, access to RGMS was disabled on 5 January 2022 to enable the migration of data from RGMS to Sapphire.

RGMS will be fully decommissioned once the final Sapphire module (Post Award Release 3) has been deployed.

Transitional Arrangements

Application and assessment processes for all grant opportunities have been managed in Sapphire since 2020.

With the release of the Sapphire Select and Post Award (Release 1) modules in September 2021, outcome notifications/documents and associated grant offers, variations and reports are now also managed in Sapphire.

Once the migration of RGMS data to Sapphire is completed, all MREA and MRFF granting activities including remaining post award functions will be managed in Sapphire.

Institutions needing to administer grants or access data that were previously announced/held in RGMS should refer to the interim arrangements and on the Sapphire Help webpage under ‘Select and Post Award’.
