Information for Institutions reporting on compliance against the NHMRC Funding Agreement.

Administering Institutions are required to submit an Institutional Annual Compliance Report (IACR) to NHMRC each year detailing compliance with the NHMRC Funding Agreement and other relevant policies for the previous calendar year. 

ALL Administering Institutions must submit a report. If your Institution did not administer NHMRC funds during the previous calendar year then a report must be submitted that informs NHMRC of this fact.

Questions and Due Date

The information provided to NHMRC within each compliance report is used by NHMRC to better understand the perspectives of Administering Institutions and to assist NHMRC's management of the matters covered. 

The IACR questions asked may change from year to year, depending on the current focus of compliance monitoring.

The IACR is due each year on 30 April. Failure to complete the report by the due date may result in delays to NHMRC making the scheduled monthly grant payments to the Administering Institution. 

For reference, a PDF version of the report questions is available from the Institutional Annual Compliance Report page. The 2019 report questions will be provided to Administering Institutions within an Excel spreadsheet, and sent by email.
