Delay in implementation of new grant management system

The State of Maine is in the process of implementing a new grant management system for all state agencies, including the Department of Education. In prior communications, we have noted that the system was expected to be available starting this spring.

However, as we approach the FY 18 grant cycle, please note that there will be a delay in the implementation of the new system which means that you should continue to use the current GEM system for application and management of education grant opportunities. For grant opportunities that are not available in GEM, management will be manual as it has been in the past.

The Department of Education is working closely with the Office of the State Controller and as we move closer to implementation of the new Grant Management System, communication will be forthcoming.

Thank you for your patience. If you have questions, please contact denise.towers@maine.gov or 624-6863.
