What is Grant Management?
Grants are funds that are given by a public body (Commonwealth Government) to an individual or entity. Grant Management refers to the publishing, administering and managing of government provided services and opportunities such as grants, tenders and auctions. It aims to reduce the silos within the Australian Government’s current ICT environment through a consistent and user centric approach. Grant Management also provides whole-of-government requirements ensuring digital solutions are aligned to achieve the Australian Government’s strategic outcomes of efficient use of taxpayers’ funds.
The Grant Management architecture is established to inform and enable better decision making for the application of the Government’s digital and ICT investments in relations to grants.
The objective is to maximise the value delivered by the existing grants hubs and reduce expenditure on delivery of grants programs.
