Why use Web-Based Effort Certification & Reporting Software?

Effort administrators understand that tracking their research grants takes time, especially if the effort certification and reporting technology the EAs are using is difficult to navigate, or not as flexible as they would like. Investing in any new technology, whether to replace an existing effort reporting system or to get one started to make reporting easier is a tedious and time-consuming task…

Applying Technological Advances To A Grants Management System

Applying Technological Advances to Your Grants Management System

Given the limited funding available to the various organizations that apply for and receive grants – or not – and considering the decreased funding over the last year overall in any sector, it is clear these organizations are having a difficult time bouncing back from the almost three-year long recession. In fact, the decreased grant awards makes it clear that a better grant management system is needed to help maximize funds already in play while remaining as cost-effective as possible.

What Happens if Time and Effort Reports Are Inaccurate?

What Happens if Time and Effort Reports Are Inaccurate?

Nevada Fire & Safety Council Will Soon Find Out…

Federal grant money comes with a lot of strings attached. Not only do recipients need to comply with specific project goals, but they must also meet government performance standards. Any organization or institution that receives federal grant money is required to comply with all federal policies and statutes regarding grant management, which includes time and effort reporting and certification processes.

Federal Effort Reporting & OMB A-87

Federal Effort Reporting Requirements & the OMB A-87

Many research institutions receive grant funding from the government, and may use that money for different purposes depending on the proposal submitted. However, because these awards are government-funded, each of these organizations and their grants managers must keep track of their time and effort reports in the same way. For this reason, the federal Office of Management and Budget put together the OMB A-87 (PDF direct link) which makes it easier to keep up to date with the federal effort reporting requirements, and continue to receive funding.

Make a Difference Working as a Grant Administrator

Why Grant Administrators are so Important

The grant administrator’s job uses a variety of skill sets, including special skills that many think should belong to a job role other than a “grants administrator,” or “grants manger.”

In an ideal world, a person might be able to stick to the “official” job description, but in the real world, the fact is that a person’s job is never done, and whatever tasks a grants administrator needs to complete as part of his or her duties, whether they are officially part of the job description or not, must be done.
