HUD taps TRW for grant tracking project

JULY 16—The Housing and Urban Development Department has awarded TRW Inc. a $2 million contract to build a software system HUD will use to disburse and track more than $26 billion in annual grants.

By October, TRW will complete the first phase of the multipart Departmental Grants Management System project, said Ken Uffelman, TRW's program manager for DGMS.

The Internet application will enable state, local and municipal governments to apply for grants online, he said. HUD employees will be able to manage more than 100 grant programs through a single application, he added.

The department has yet to announce the vendors for the other phases of the program.

The Federal Financial Assistance Management Improvement Act of 1999 directed federal agencies that handle grants to develop more efficient systems for managing them and to reduce duplicative and unnecessary reporting requirements.
