Grant Systems Support

Manager: Tammy Bopp
Staff: Laura Olsen

Grant Systems Support is responsible for the transition from our current grants management system, eGrants, into the Statewide Grants Gateway, including prequalification of GTSC's Not-For-Profit organizations. We also process grant submissions, provide Single Audit information for federal award recipients, respond to annual audit requests of grantee disbursements, add new grantees to the Statewide Vendor File and serve as liaison between the NYS Division of the Treasury and grantees, replacing lost or destroyed reimbursements. We coordinate with Statewide Financial System and Grants Gateway staff to customize the systems to meet federal reporting requirements, report program data to federal oversight agencies and reconcile State agency expenditures.
