10 Simplifying documents Funding rules The ARC has released one set of funding rules for the Discovery Program and one for the Linkage Program (excepting Centres and SRIs). These rules detail elements common to all funding schemes under each Program, with attachments specific to each scheme. Previously each scheme released separate funding rules. Funding Agreements

11 Simplifying forms Application forms – ways to increase the efficiency of its grant application processes—specifically the format and content of its application forms. Collecting information – what and how Eligibility – EER for DE16 in RMS 2.0 Reporting – new systems for the collection of end-of-year financial reporting information aimed at improving the requirement for manual manipulation of spreadsheets.

12 Working together Working with the NHMRC – The ARC is working with the NHMRC to ensure, as much as is possible, a consistent approach between the two agencies. – Some differences result from the different discipline responsibilities. Consultations with the sector
