Checking your Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) Status

An Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) submits a grant on behalf of a company, organization, institution, or government. AORs have the authority to sign grant applications and the required certifications and/or assurances that are necessary to fulfill the requirements of the application process. Follow the instructions below to check your AOR Status:

Check your AOR Status

  1. Go to the Grants.gov homepage
  2. Click on "Applicant Login" on the right side of the screen (right-hand navigation)
  3. Enter your username and password and click "Login"(If you are able to login, you have successfully completed the Grants.gov Registration process)
  4. You should receive an email from Grants.gov after your E-Biz POC authorizes your AOR status
  5. Click on "Manage Applicant Profile" and your profile will be displayed
  6. The AOR status on your profile will state "Approved" or "AOR Request Sent"
If you are able to login to Grants.gov, then you have successfully completed the Grants.gov registration process. Read instructions for Checking AOR Status. If your profile has not been approved you will need to contact your E-Biz POC and request their approval of your AOR status.

I am an Approved Organization Representative (AOR), why am I not able to submit?

In some instances the E-Business Point of Contact (grant administrator/CFO) for your organization may unknowingly provide or deny your Authorized Organization Representative status (right to submit).

The E-Business Point of Contact (E-Biz POC) has the authority to provide or deny rights to an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR). The E-Biz POC has the ability to:

  1. View list of AORs registered at Grants.gov under specific DUNS
  2. Assign AOR role
  3. Revoke AOR role
  4. Delete AOR login
  5. View/search list of submissions made under that DUNS
  6. View rejected with errors message, if any submission is rejected (similar to AOR)
  7. Receive email when a new applicant registers at Grants.gov under that DUNS

If you believe that your AOR rights/login permission are being affected please contact your organization's E-Biz POC promptly. If the issue persists after contacting your E-Biz POC, call the Grants.gov Contact Center at: 1-800-518-4726.
