This Request for Information (RFI) seeks ideas to help the City of Seattle validate its business requirements, approach, and priorities for a new Grants Management System (GMS) to be shared by six City departments. The group of departments who will use the new system function primarily as grantors for community grants, and our financial and reporting requirements will reflect that orientation.
The project team has developed business requirements, but prior to issuing a formal RFP, we are interested in gaining new perspectives on best practice for grantor-oriented systems, and fresh ideas on how current technology solutions can help us fulfill our project scope and objectives.
A successful product match will reflect a “cradle to grave” set of grants management functions (high-level requirements categories are listed below). We want our customers all over the City to have easy access to our listing of available grants, to be able to apply for those grants online, to obtain status about their grant application, or if they’ve already received a grant, to get and share information on the financial status or completion of their grant.
