Support for Multiple Grant Administrators
Tailored for diverse institutional needs, our system accommodates separate administrators for Government, Foundation, and Corporate Grants. Each administrator enjoys personalized instances with adjustable access levels, fostering a seamless and organized grants management experience. Administrators can choose to give either read only or admin access to their colleagues. Additionally, Principal Investigators (PI) have access to all their own grants on the same page, regardless of which Grants administrator they are working through.
Grant Application Document Management
Simplify the application process with our streamlined document management feature. Grant administrators can effortlessly designate essential documents, assign each to a specific person, and schedule timely reminders. With due date fields prompting Mentor email reminders, the process is not only organized but also proactive. Our system accepts email attachments directly from the responsible individuals, seamlessly filing each document under the respective grant upon receipt. To ensure real-time updates, Mentor can instantly notify the grants administrator via email upon successful document submission. Experience a hassle-free and transparent document workflow, enhancing the overall efficiency of your grant application process.
Many institutions require approvals (by department chairs, deans, etc.) before a grant can be submitted. Mentor makes this easy. The grant administrator simply names the person whose approval is required with a due date. The administrator can then send an email from Mentor and can schedule subsequent reminders. The person who is so named can access the full grant (in read only mode) on the Mentor My Grants tab. When the approval is received, Mentor sends a notification to the grants administrator. The grants administrator can name as many approvals as needed.
Utilize the integrated Messages page for seamless communication between PIs and administrators, ensuring a transparent and efficient workflow. Both the PI and the grant administrator can use the grant Messages page to communicate. Messages are sent via email and archived with the grant for later reference.
Grants Annual Report
Gain valuable insights with our insightful annual report (or any date range you select) summarizing funded and unfunded grants. Customize the report by filtering by school and PI, and leverage integration with the Mentor Faculty Activity Reporting System for enhanced reporting capabilities. A school version of this report can be displayed on the Dean’s page and a department version of this report can be displayed on the Chair’s page.
