I often receive requests for information on Microsoft Grants Manager Plus. While there are many resources for the solution, they are scattered a bit on several websites, so this blog post is designed to provide links to them all in one place.
Microsoft Grants Manager Plus is Microsoft's software solution for grantors to track the entire grant process, from establishing programs to publishing opportunities, accepting online applications, reviewing and scoring applications, grant awards, post-award reporting and closeout. It is built on the Microsoft platform, including Dynamics CRM and SQL Server, so it shares the same security model as these products. It includes record and field level security as well as an organizational hierarchy in the security model which together provide quite granular security options. You may use single sign-on in conjunction with Active Directory.
Microsoft chose InfoStrat to develop Stimulus360 in 2009 and later Grants Manager Plus based on the company's experience with grant management over 20 years.
