10 Working Day Application Review Deadline

The Research Services Office deals with a high volume of grant applications on a year round basis. In order to ensure adequate time for applications to be compliance reviewed prior to submission a 10 working day deadline in advance of external funder lodgement date is in place for grant applications to be received in the RSO for review. (Please note that longer internal deadlines apply for applications to ARC and NHMRC). A full complete draft of your application should be submitted for review. While the RSO will always endeavour to review all applications received prior to submission to funding bodies, applications received later than the 10 working day deadline will not be guaranteed a compliance review prior to submission.
