Subject: GrantSolutions Web-Based System Training
The Indian Health Service, Division of Grants Management will continue to present regular training opportunities for our Web-based Grants Management System, GrantSolutions. This system has made the grants process truly paperless, with all applications, reports and award documents handled on-line. There are many advantages to all our stakeholders when using the GrantSolutions System. You are able to process grant requests, see historical records for your award, approve funding memos, submit required reports and non-competing continuation applications, and much more entirely on-line! In the live webinars, we will present a demonstration of all features and functions available to you in GrantSolutions, including a complete walk-through of the Non-Competing Continuation application process, a step every grantee can expect to complete in order to obtain continued IHS grant funding during the life cycle of their award.
