As a grantor or a grantee, your organization is responsible to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions of the funding that you receive. My company InfoStrat has implemented grant management systems for U.S. government agencies and non-profits for over twenty years. Here are some of the principles that we follow in order to help clients achieve compliance and accountability as efficiently as possible: Focus on your system of record . Having a central system that is the authoritative source of information on your grants is essential for high quality data and accurate reporting. Try to eliminate and discourage additional "side" systems such as spreadsheets and Access databases which may lead to inconsistent data or calculations. Respect your data . Keeping your database clean is a constant process, but is the only way to meet your compliance goals. Encourage users to take care in data entry, and create validation where possible to capture errors. Audit rep
