How Would You Improve Grants.gov?
The Grants Policy Committee is preparing a response to a GAO report about the timeliness of grant application submission through Grants.gov, and they want help from the public.
The GPC’s Preaward Workgroup is drafting an OMB response to the July GAO Report, “Grants.gov Has Systemic Weaknesses That Require Attention.” This workgroup is specifically focusing on the GAO recommendation regarding the timeliness of applications. Some of the issues being addressed by the GPC workgroup include what constitutes a timely application, how to notify applicants regarding the timeliness of applications, and handling of late applications.
While this is not a formal request for comments from the workgroup, it is an outreach effort designed to gather input from the grants community and offer stakeholders the opportunity to have their concerns and ideas reflected in the official OMB response.
Input can be provided through the GPC website at www.GPC.gov.
