RGMS is a program and portfolio management (PPM) system that enables you to apply for, track and administer NHMRC grants online, as well as participate in peer review.
Researchers can also maintain a profile and curriculum vitae, which is used for application and other administrative purposes.
Registered users can login to RGMS at https://www.rgms.nhmrc.gov.au or by clicking on the icon below.
To apply for an account, simply follow the New to RGMS link on the RGMS login page, or see the RGMS User Guide - Introduction to RGMS for more detailed instructions.
