Atlanta, Georgia


eCivis has been a critical partner for identifying and soliciting private and competitive grants, but we also saw an opportunity to enhance the use of the application to support full life cycle grants management. 

The Results: The City of Atlanta was able to increase the number of qualified proposals by 44% over the previous year and encompassed a geography of 29 counties. This year, the City was able to create efficiencies in the entitlement proposal process as well as a link for the public to use to complete the entire process electronically. This application has led the City into the modern era of grants management where cloud-based software reduces administration time and redundancies, has reduced audit and compliance issues, and driven information sharing and collaboration between departments and administration.

The Mission: The City’s entitlement grants portfolio is multifaceted including numerous requirements unique to each specific type of grant. After careful review of different grants management systems, the City of Atlanta selected eCivis as its vendor for Grants Management Software. The City’s initial initiative was to utilize the eCivis application to source opportunities on behalf of the City, and as the City continued to identify efficiencies, the opportunity to enhance the use of the application was highlighted. The City struggled to manage and maintain a cohesive Subrecipient Management process, and eCivis stood out for multiple reasons including but not limited to the ability to integrate the financials with their ERP. 

The Work: The City’s timeline was extremely constricted and required training in addition to major change management. eCivis’ project management, knowledge base, customer support and willingness to adapt enabled the City to achieve it’s goal in a timely manner. eCivis provided the capabilities that positioned them as the industry leader for end-to-end (full lifecycle) grants management.
