Grant management isn’t simple. The fact is, the challenges hit hard without a centralized process and document management.
What is Grant Management?
Grant management is all the administrative work that goes into issuing and managing applications, using and fulfilling the requirements of a grant. It encompasses every part of a grant’s lifecycle, from pre-award research through post-award grant closeout.
