Simplifying grants management supports better program delivery
Paper documents and compliance tasks put a heavy strain on federal grants management work. Manual tasks necessitated by paper-based processes dominate receiving, awarding and managing grants. This creates process delays that lead to slow expenditure rates and award decisions – particularly in understaffed areas or those hit by high rates of retirement. Relying on paper creates a lack of visibility into processes, making it difficult to review projects, check on an application’s status or gain insight into grant expenditure impacts.
