New grants management system for DIIS

Fujitsu Australia has been engaged by the federal Department of Industry, Innovation and Science to implement an end-to-end grants management system based on the company’s Grants Management solution.

Comprising a public portal powered by Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the Fujitsu Grants Manager will deliver a total management solution for the Department’s Business Grants Hub.

The Department delivers a number of grants and services to businesses, some of which are on behalf of a number of other federal government departments.

According to a company statement, the system “is being delivered via an agile methodology to secure workflow-based registration, application, assessment, award, payment and associated management processes”.

The aim is to reduce the time between accepting an application and awarding a grant, as well as a “clearer management view of grant statuses, results and outcomes”.

The first stage of the new functionality is scheduled to go live in 2017.

“The Department is currently undertaking a program of work to transform the way it connects with and supports businesses so that our services are easier to find and understand, quicker and easier to access, and more tailored to business needs,” said Clive Rossiter, the Department’s general manager.

“A key part of this is a digital end-to-end grants management solution that will enable us to streamline how we deliver grants, making it easier for our customers.”

“We view this engagement with the Department as a long-term strategic partnership. The Grants Manager is a market-leading and highly resilient accelerated solution that can be easily enhanced and configured to support the Department’s business requirements,” said Steve O’Connell, general manager, federal, Fujitsu Australia.

“We are committed to working collaboratively with the Department to deliver a highly robust grants management solution that can rapidly adapt to all future business changes.”
