Introductory GrantSolutions award recipient training videos can be found on the GrantSolutions website.
The data that recipients are able to view regarding their open DOI financial assistance awards includes, but is not limited to, the following:
Recipients should have received system access according to their financial assistance awarding bureau’s deployment timeline. If your organization receives awards from more than one DOI bureau, your organization is now able to manage awards from the respective awarding bureaus.
No, your organization will not receive a new user account when your DOI awarding bureau uses GrantSolutions. Instead, you will use your current credentials to log into GrantSolutions and manage your DOI financial assistance awards.
Recipients can request new user accounts through the GrantSolutions homepage (www.grantsolutions.gov) by completing and submitting the Recipient User Account Request Form to the GrantSolutions Help Desk.
The GrantSolutions transition should not have affected how organizations receive award funding. The funds transfer arrangement you previously had in place with your awarding bureau should have remained in effect after the bureau deployed GrantSolutions.
Native American tribal organizations who receive financial assistance from DOI bureaus under 2 CFR 200 - Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, And Audit Requirements for Federal Awards will use GrantSolutions to manage financial assistance.
In addition to current application methods (e.g., Grants.gov), organizations with GrantSolutions accounts also have the option to apply for financial assistance awards through the GrantSolutions Grants Management Module. This is determined by the awarding agency/office and communicated via the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO).
Recipient enrollment and account management did not change due to the GrantSolutions transition. If it is currently required, you still need to be registered to do business with the Federal Government through the System for Award Management (SAM).
