Ensuring a well trained grants management workforce

Ensuring a Well-Trained Grants Management Workforce

Federal grants management workforce has been characterized by a lack of a standardized structure across the government with insufficient certification and continuous learning requirements, which has led to:

  • Inconsistent application of government-wide requirements across Federal agencies

  • Barriers to communication and collaboration between agency grants management professionals

  • Lack of professional recognition for a highly skilled workforce

  • Unclear career path for grants management professionals within the Federal government


Current focus future plans

Current Focus & Future Plans

  • Current Focus: Preparing a business case that captures the reasoning and benefits of establishing government-wide training and certification

  • Future Plans:

    • Refining competencies

    • Defining career paths

    • Developing curricula

    • Delineating the certification process
