DMI Wins Contract to Operate and Enhance HHS Grants.Gov System
Mission Critical Web Application Annually Processes More Than 300,000 Grant Applications for All 26 Federal Grant-making Agencies
Bethesda, MD—November 30, 2011—DMI (DMInc.com), a leading IT solutions and business strategy consulting firm, today announced that it has won a contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to host, operate, maintain and enhance the agency’s Grants.gov system.
Grants.gov provides a one-stop electronic portal where potential grant recipients can find and apply for Federal grants. The system simplifies grants management, eliminating redundancies, and making transactions with the Government easier, cheaper, quicker and more comprehensible.
Each week, this mission-critical web application receives more than 4 million page views, sends over 1 million email notifications, and processes more than 5,000 grant applications. The Grants.gov program has been relied upon during the recent financial crisis to deliver nearly $210 billion in economic stimulus funds through its contract, grant, and loan programs as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
Under the contract, DMI will provide the ongoing operation, availability, and performance of the Grants.gov system. DMI will also apply leading edge public cloud, analytics, social media and mobile technologies to enhance the functionality, capacity, and availability of the system to meet the expanding expectations of agency and applicant stakeholders. DMI’s new Innovation Center in Washington, D.C. will serve as a sandbox environment to test and pilot new technologies for application to Grants.gov.
“We are honored to have been selected to manage and enhance Grants.gov,” said Jay Sunny Bajaj, DMI’s CEO. “This win is a strong example of the trust our clients place in us to operate some of the world’s most critical systems—with applications that are relied upon by scores of agencies and millions of users. It’s also an affirmation of our leadership in applying advanced technologies to reduce costs while maintaining reliability and enhancing user experience.”
