Recently the Office of Head Start launched its Head Start Enterprise System (HSES). It's a great green tool for OHS and its grantees, allowing us to share files through a singular source.
I propose a similar tool for the Office of Grants Management. Rather than mailing hard copies to the Regional Office, grantees can simply upload documents for OGM to archive accordingly. This would reduce filing, use of stationary, minimize miscommunication, and applications would be submitted in a more timely manner. This would also reduce operating costs for our grantees.
HSES already imports data from GATES and Funds Planning therefore I propose that an online Grants Management tool imports data from HSES and other agencies which OGM supports.
Thank you for your consideration.
