The reality is that smart people are often asked to figure it [grants] out. It's an impossible task given the workload and budget constraints that government agencies face while needing to keep up with changes in federal grant policy and compliance. Increasing grant revenue and reducing audit findings has never been more difficult. eCivis offers consulting, grant writing and training services to help effectively pursue grants, stay compliant and deliver your program outcomes.

Change management planning refers to visualizing and preparing to drive organizational and structural change throughout the enterprise. A focused change management plan is necessary to help government departments and stakeholders understand the future-looking roles and responsibilities, why this approach is in place, and what has to happen to make it possible. This will also help to facilitate the groundwork for essential changes in long term behavior that have resulted in many of the potentially ineffective grants processes that have been in practice.
