Zenius Publishes Whitepaper Focusing on Evolving Federal Grants Management Legislation and Compliance Regs for Agencies 

“Grants transparency benefits the American people— for greater government accountability, optimized grant performance, and reduced waste and overhead, freeing up more tax dollars for grants use.” 

–Danny Harris, CIO, Department of Education (retired) 

Leesburg, Va – Sept 22, 2016 – Zenius Corporation has published a whitepaper outlining the attributes needed to launch a powerful grants management system, in compliance with the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (DATA Act).  The DATA Act represents first of-its-kind legislation that seeks to operationalize the concept of government transparency, and make critical data public across many lines of business, throughout the federal sector.  Although a historical step toward increased government transparency and accountability, the DATA Act faces many challenges. Zenius Corporation’s white paper addresses these challenges and elaborates methods that will enable compliance with the evolving legislation, by recommending   modernization and improvement of existing systems, or applying innovation and discipline to new systems to be developed. 

Zenius Corporation has been at the forefront of developing grants management shared services for many years, and has developed a powerful configuration-driven, plug and play modular platform which is applicable for federal agencies that administer grants, as well as for state governments and Higher Education institutions.  The federal government currently disburses over $650 billion annually in federal funding towards grants to the public.  Building and maintaining powerful systems for end-to-end management of grants lifecycles is paramount, and government accountability becomes necessary when distributing taxpayers’ money to citizen-directed projects.
