Candidate Assessment Tool for Grants Management Professionals

Grants management professionals must possess a broad cross-section of competencies: knowledge of federal circulars; allowable and unallowable costs; cost allocation strategies; negotiation skills to establish quality budgets and sub-award agreements; the full range of administrative and reporting requirements; elements of the closeout process; audit requirements; and audit resolution techniques. This assessment is designed to serve two distinct groups: 1) hiring managers and 2) professionals and job applicants who want to assess their own knowledge and skills across a large array of grants management competencies. 

It should take approximately 30 minutes for grants professionals and job applicants to complete the assessment.

This assessment is intended for use by all sectors of the grants management field, including all levels of government, private and non-profit organizations, universities and foundations.
