Call for Tender for the Advanced Level Accreditation Program 2020

November 27, 2019

SUPPLEMENTARY Call for Tender for the Delivery of the ARMS Advanced Level Accreditation Program - ELEMENT 2 ONLY

Tender Proposals are due 5 PM AEDST 7 February 2020


The Advanced Level Accreditation Program or ALAP  is designed for mid to senior research management professionals who wish to enhance their leadership, management and content skills to become more effective research leaders in the rapidly evolving research and innovation sector.  Since its introduction in 2016, the ALAP has graduated 29 research management professionals.

During its initial formation, the ARMS Board agreed that the ALAP would run initially for a 3 year period and would then undergo a comprehensive review to ensure that the content continues to reflect current trends in the profession and that there is interest in the uptake of the program by ARMS members. The review involved a survey and focus group discussions with ALAP alumni.  Following this consultation period, a small number of program refinements were recommended and considered by the ARMS Education and Professional Development Committee and the ARMS Accreditation Council.   These recommendations were endorsed by the ARMS Board and are now reflected in the revised program. 

Three core areas have been revised in the review and formed the basis for an initial Call for Tender which closed on the 6th of January 2020. At the close of this call, proposals were not received for the following electives under Element 2 (Work package 2)

  • Data Driven Research Improvement; 
  •   Evidence based analysis of institutional research performance and return on investment; and 
  • Managing Complex Strategic Partnerships 

ARMS now invites proposals from individuals for a supplementary call for Tender under Element 2 only to close on  the 7th of February 2020.
