Northrop to build Grants.gov
Northrop Grumman Corp. will plan, design and implement Grants.gov, a one-stop Web portal for applicants applying for grants from some 900 participating federal programs. The contract from the Health and Human Services Department could be worth $7 million over the next five years.
The first phase of the project should be complete in October. Grants.gov will standardize the application process by providing a common point for submitting applications electronically to federal grant-making agencies.
Northrop Grumman Information Technology, the unit of the Los Angeles-based company that will develop the site, also will help agencies integrate individual grants management systems with Grants.gov. It is teaming with AT&T Corp.'s government solutions business in Vienna, Va., and Ekagra Software Technologies of Centreville, Va.
