Use Cases / Grant Distribution

Turn innovative ideas into new programs faster!

A digitized application process can shorten the time it takes to approve proposals by several weeks and expedite the allocation of grant money.

Challenge

Many parties are involved in assessing grant requests for new healthcare, transportation, financial aid, education, job training, and community development services. Paper-based processes for reviewing, approving, and obtaining signatures on dozens of proposals are slow, disorganized, and error-prone. Government agencies need a structured way to review these applications, which often require signoff from several employees across multiple departments.

Requirements

  • The ability for citizens to submit proposals online
  • Automated and properly sequenced routing to internal evaluators
  • Customization of form and process to agency’s unique requirements
  • Integrated electronic signature
  • Fast implementation

Solution

  • Digital form fields can be tailored to reflect the requirements of projects sponsored by the grant
  • Workflow automation sends email alerts to stakeholders in legal, HR, finance, accounting, or other departments to initiate proposal review
  • Grant requests are automatically routed to internal parties in the appropriate order
  • Employees can send requests for more information to other participants in the process through the SimpliGov platform with auto-generated email alerts
  • The process for releasing funds is automatically triggered upon acceptance of each proposal
  • Integration with accounting and finance systems enables seamless reporting and payment
  • Integrated SimpliSign eSignature comes at no extra cost
  • No-code, cloud-based platform can be live in weeks

Results

  • Agencies focus on their constituents, not bureaucracy
  • Community benefits from new programs quicker
  • Greater efficiency—significantly more proposals evaluated in less time
  • Drastic reduction in errors associated with manual, paper-based forms and processes
