When it comes to grants management, every government entity needs to have its important procedures written-down, including responsibilities, deadlines, billing, accounting, compliance, application and acceptance, close-out, and documentation.
Read below on how to set up proper grants management procedures.
In our blog post last week, we provided you with a template for preparing a grant status report.
In this post, we’ll show you a what a simple grants procedures document can look like.
The below standard procedures document is a simple set of grants management procedures which we recently prepared for a client. It spells out important tasks and responsibilities. This can be used as a template starting point for documenting your government’s grants management procedures.
We’ve created a downloadable grants procedure template here:
All numbers and details have of course been replaced by sample numbers.
This grants management procedures template can be used to tailor specifically to your City’s needs and circumstances. You can review the input for the document as a team, and discuss what level of detail is appropriate for into your government’s procedures document.
As a reminder, if you still need help in preparing your grant status report, please check out this useful grant status report template here.
