Grants Management Handbook.
Hale, Carol
Based on the business practices of the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD), in Arizona, this handbook provides an overview of activities involved in starting up a new or continuing grant. The handbook begins with the negotiation process but focuses primarily on events after the grant is funded. Following a brief overview of the grant process, the following sections are provided: (1) negotiating with government funding agencies, including handling the initial call and several negotiating strategies; (2) the negotiator's responsibilities as a grants administrator, including a list of the files that must be maintained and a general account of the administrator's responsibilities; (3) key contacts for administrators at the college, district, state, and federal levels; (4) preparing for managing the grant, discussing the proposal, budgets, regulations, and notice of award; (5) managing supplies, equipment, and travel and hiring personnel; (6) hiring, reassigning, and supervising personnel; (7) managing the grant's funding; (8) time and records management; (9) preparing and revising the operational budget; (10) writing grant reports; (11) closing out the grant; (12) avoiding common errors; and (13) preparing for an audit. Appendixes cover MCCCD Governing Board grants policy, board action items and acceptance forms, responsibilities of the District Director of Grants Development and Management, a grant writer's checklist, proposal planning and writing, tips for developing successful proposals, matching funds for grants, helpful MCCCD phone numbers, grant terminology, and monthly grant time records.
