State grants management

In October 2011, the State Auditor’s Office (SAO) released their audit report on state grants. Based on the results of the audit, SAO recommended that the Office of Financial Management (OFM) develop a clear definition of state grants and provide guidance on grants management to help ensure consistency across state agencies.

In response to these recommendations, OFM formed a workgroup of experts from several state agencies in the area of grants and contracts management to formulate guidance, develop tools, and identify resources for grants management.

The following resources are intended to provide general guidance for state agencies in the management and monitoring of state grants.
