Hi All,

I am reaching out for your best practices when it comes to signing grant acceptance forms. Currently, our Foundation has a grant acceptance form built out in GLM that is assigned as a follow-up form. Below are the questions that we ask regarding authorization to sign/accept.

Most often, we find that the person who is writing the grant tends to be program staff or a grant writer and not someone who is allowed to enter into contracts for the organization. That is why we have this workflow if you will.

I would love to hear how your Foundation manages this process! Thanks 😊

    Our Foundation uses a similar verbiage following the contract. I like your wording better, especially the first question and might start using this too---"Have you informed..."
