Information for Applicants
Reports for ARC-funded projects and fellowships are important elements in ensuring accountability and good management of public funding for research. Reports also assist in drawing our attention and the attention of the Research Office staff to concerns and problems that researchers face.
Output and outcome reporting plays an increasingly significant role in government research funding and policy. The ARC compiles statistics on the outputs and outcomes from publicly-funded research. Final Reports give, for each project, information on the number and types of publications and other outputs that have been generated, the research training that has been supported and the research personnel involved. Statistical information compiled on the basis of Final Reports supports the ARC's advocacy for the funding of quality research that brings economic, social and cultural benefit to the Australian community.
Reporting requirements for each project are outlined in the relevant Funding Contract and include:
- Progress Reports
- Final Reports
- End of Year Reports
- Audited Financial Statements
- Annual Reports
- Partner Organisation Agreed Contribution Report
Subject to the Funding Contract/Agreement for specific schemes, the ARC reserves the right to withhold payment of further instalments of any funded project until the appropriate reports have been received and assessed as satisfactory.
