REI Systems’ event was cited in an article published yesterday by Federal News Radio about our Grants Management Breakfast (GMB) Forum on the Grant Reporting Efficiency and Agreements Transparency (GREAT) Act. At the event, Carson Middleton and Andrew Noh, legislative directors for Representatives Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and Jimmy Gomez (D-CA), held an open discussion on the GREAT Act. The Act appears to be supported by grant managers, but the discussion pointed out opportunities to address more challenges associated with grants management. Middleton and Noh agreed that both Republicans and Democrats share the goal of making grants management less burdensome, as well as more efficient and transparent. The two also discussed the GREAT act’s requirement for a portal on which agencies would publish grant data. That portal may help potential applicants search for grant programs that are relevant to their needs.
