Role of staff

Australia Council staff do not decide whether a grant application is successful or not.

The role of Australia Council staff in the assessment process is to:

  • review the respective applications to each grant category and determine eligibility, complying with the Council’s policies at all times
  • determine whether the connections that a peer identifies with applications or applicants are a conflict of interest, and how they should be managed
  • facilitate the assessment panel meetings, ensuring that meeting protocols are maintained and the panel makes fair and accountable decisions
  • provide factual or background information during the assessment meeting to help peers deliberate
  • collect high level feedback on the grant category and applications discussed to share with applicants.

Any information you receive from Australia Council staff should be seen as information only - you should not alter your circumstances or act upon expectations arising from such information.
