Variation to a Grant Agreement

This page provides information about the variations that may be required and changes to partner and participating organisation reports. These reports may be required by ARC or another Funding Entity.

Changes in circumstances over the duration of a grant may necessitate a Variation of the Grant Agreement (Variation) or a Partner/Participating Organisation Agreed Contribution Report (POACR).

Variations and POACRs must be requested through the Research Office of the Administering Organisation. Requests must be submitted via the relevant version/instance of RMS by Research Office staff.

Who the Variation is submitted to may be different for each Program, Scheme, Priority or Challenge and Funding Entity.   

Click here for instructions about how to complete and submit a Variation and/or POACR

For all new participants requesting to be added to a Grant, please complete the participant eligibility confirmation form and attach to the variation.
