ARC Research Management System

Business owner: Research Services Division

Using the ARC Research Management System (RMS) allows researchers requesting funding under the ARC National Competitive Grants Program to prepare and submit proposals electronically.

To request a new RMS ID, use the login link above, and do the following steps:

  1. Select Request New Account.
  2. Complete the form and request.

When you request a new account the request is sent first to the Research Services Division for validation and then to the ARC. They will advise you by email how to log on/activate your account.

Should you have any trouble with this process please contact your College Research Office or use the User Guide.

College Research Offices, please advise arc.rms@anu.edu.au in advance of external applicants requesting an account. This enables the Research Services Division to expediently validate the account.
