CED Systems for Grant Administration

A CED Grantee Module

This module is part of the CED Grantee Toolkit.

There are three main systems you will access to manage your grant: GrantSolutions, On-Line Data Collection System (OLDC), and Payment Management System (PMS). Review the materials in this section to learn more about how to access these systems and use them to implement your grant and meet the requirements of the CED program.


Watch this video and tutorial on using GrantSolutions.

GrantSolutions is a grants management tool that provides an online venue for OCS and OGM to work with you to manage your award. It facilitates the electronic sharing of information by allowing grantees, program offices, and grant offices the ability to collaborate with one another about their grants. This is the system in which the majority of grant-related activities and communication will occur.
