Streamlining Grants Management with MIP and SEFA Pro Software

Summary

Tribal entities and non-profits that receive federal awards often struggle to manage their grants efficiently, or even correctly, which can lead to costly errors. Simply producing the dreaded Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA report) has been anything but simple, involving a hugely cumbersome and error-prone effort to collect all relevant information manually from many different sources.

Using the right software, however, can greatly streamline the reporting process and ensure that all necessary information is provided in a timely manner. It can even help to generate relevant grant reconciliations throughout the year, and at year-end.

Join members of REDW’s Software Solutions team and National Tribal Practice for a discussion of the benefits of using MIP Fund Accounting software, plus our add-on SEFA Pro module, to manage your federal grants more effectively.
