Why is Online Grant Application Management Important?

Developing efficient and effective practices in the early phases of the grant lifecycle can help organisations set a precedent to improve their whole project delivery and drive better project outcomes. Here’s how organisations can achieve a well-managed grant application process.

Configure Your Online Grant Applications

Publishing online grant applications is a critical first step towards improving full lifecycle grant program management. By pairing online grant applications with integrated assessment workflows, high quality data capture and validation organisations can realise significant benefits and reduce the administrative burden. 

Full lifecycle management of grant programs is often hampered, right from the start, with organisations frequently using separate systems and processes to capture grant applications, store expressions of interest, assess eligibility, communicate review results, and manage the applicant details. Data is frequently collated from a variety of systems without the benefit of a trusted reference or direct connection to a single central baseline data set. 

A full lifecycle management solution should start with integrating the online application process directly with assessment workflows and sound data management practices. Using Tactiv’s Enquire Lifecycle Management System, organisations can harness an advanced program management solution that supports the ability to create configurable grant application forms that can be published online. Application forms can be aligned and integrated with assessment workflows to support efficient traceable application review. Application data is improved with repeatable and standardised capture, automated form validations and 3rd party services to support verifications, such as confirmation of tax registration status.

Centralise Your Grant Application Data

Capturing grant applications online also ensures every application is stored in one place, so information is easy to retrieve and available to all team members and decision-makers. Workflows to process applications and support decision-making processes are enhanced because the data is properly managed in a single system drawing on the same and most up-to-date record. 


Take the Complications out of Assessments

Designing grant application forms with stages that are integrated with assessment workflows, backed by alerts and tracking, provides organisations the power to control and manage the end-to-end process with transparency, traceability and compliance to policies and regulations. 


Manage Reporting with Ease

Grant application status and project reporting is enhanced through integrating online applications, assessment workflows and improved data management by reducing barriers between systems, business processes and supporting teams. A management software solution must meet the full end-to-end lifecycle for grant information management, including publishing grant applications online.
