Fujitsu to build, implement government grants management system


Fujitsu has been contracted by the federal government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science to build and implement an end-to-end grants management system to deliver a total management solution for the department’s Business Grants Hub.

The system will be based on Fujitu’s public Grants Management solution with services delivered through a public portal powered by Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

The department delivers a number of grants and services to businesses, some of which are on behalf of a number of other federal government departments.

Department of Industry, Innovation and Science general manager, Clive Rossiter, said the department is currently undertaking a programme of work to transform the way it connects with and supports businesses so that services are easier to find and understand, quicker and easier to access, and more tailored to business needs.

“A key part of this is a digital end-to-end grants management solution that will enable us to streamline how we deliver grants, making it easier for our customers,” he said.

Steve O’Connell, general manager, Federal, Fujitsu, said Fujitsu Grants Manager, currently applied in global private sector organisations, is being delivered via an agile methodology to secure workflow-based registration, application, assessment, award, payment and associated management processes.

Fujitsu says benefits of the deployment by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science will be reduced time between a grant application and awarding, as well as a clearer management view of grant statuses, results and outcomes.

“We view this engagement with the department as a long-term strategic partnership. The Grants Manager is a market-leading and highly resilient accelerated solution that can be easily enhanced and configured to support the department’s business requirements,” O’Connell said.

“We are committed to working collaboratively with the department to deliver a highly robust grants management solution that can rapidly adapt to all future business changes.”

The solution is expected to go live in early 2017.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
