Grant design and delivery services

At the Business Grants Hub we partner with government departments and entities to design and implement grants programs for customers.

Delivering government grants

We provide streamlined and standardised end-to-end delivery services across the grants program lifecycle:

  1. Engage: develop costings, governance arrangements and grant opportunity assumptions
  2. Design: configure your program and provide assessment guidelines and a fit-for-purpose readiness evaluation
  3. Assess: assess grant applications and make recommendations
  4. Establish: negotiate and execute grant agreements
  5. Manage: monitor compliance and manage risk and payments
  6. Evaluate: help you evaluate and close the program

Our service offerings:

  • program design and management expertise
  • an integrated grants management system
  • public facing content
  • dedicated support for customers
  • data management and streamlined reporting and make grant payments on your behalf of partnering government entities
  • risk management.

Simplifying government grants administration

We are dedicated to simplifying grants administration and experience in line with the Streamlining Government Grants Administration Program. 

Benefits for applicants and grant recipients

  • Accurate centralised information
  • A single entry point to conduct end-to-end digital administration, accessible on any device
  • Pre-qualification through ‘tell us once’ online authentication processes
  • A consistent user experience (language, processes, requirements, look and feel, documentation, and customer service standards)

Benefits for government

  • Standardised, streamlined program design and delivery
  • Best practice that complies with whole-of-government frameworks and standard processes
  • New programs that are designed and launched quickly and with less risk
  • Simpler, faster and more cost-effective services
  • Consolidated ICT systems that mean less capital investment in grant systems
  • Policy informed by reliable real-time intelligence
  • Greater visibility of grant programs across government
  • Security in the event of machinery of government changes

Delivery times

Usually, your program will be ready for launch about 12 to 16 weeks after you tell us you want to deliver it through the Business Grants Hub. We are able to on-board ad-hoc grant opportunities more quickly.

It typically takes about 6 to 8 weeks to review and assess grant applications and provide you with a recommendation.

If a program needs urgent attention we may be able to negotiate a shorter implementation timeframe for an additional cost.
