RAOs are advised that as of September 2017, NHMRC will no longer amend grant budgets in RGMS after the approval of In-progress Deferrals or Extended Leave variation requests (including requests to vary part time hours). 

NHMRC will continue to make payments as per the grant schedule and Administering Institutions will be required to manage the flow of funds in accordance with the varied arrangements.

Budget changes will continue to be processed for Defer Start Date, Parental Leave and variations that reduce the funding period, for example changes from part time to full time hours. Changes to grant end dates and reporting milestones will continue to be actioned as usual to ensure the planned reporting of outcomes and financial acquittals.
