The Applicant Management section contains functionality that users with the appropriate access can change, edit, and manage organizational-level settings and access.
Manage Applicants: Add, remove, and modify user roles, access, and account status.
Manage Certificates: Used to manage user roles in organizations using system-to-system web services to connect with Grants.gov.
Manage Organization Profile: View organization information, such as SAM expiration date, and set organization preferences.
Accessing these Functions
The E-Business Point of Contact (EBiz POC) is an organization applicant who is responsible for the administration and management of grant activities for his or her organization, which includes authorizing Grants.gov roles. The EBiz POC is likely to be an organization's chief financial officer or authorizing official.
There can only be one EBiz POC per DUNS number, but a user who has the AOR role with the MPIN can also utilize the Applicant Management actions. In some organizations, a person may serve as both an EBiz POC and an AOR. In this situation, the person who is the EBiz POC will need to register with Grants.gov using a different email address, then, logged in as the EBiz POC, assign the AOR role to their other Grants.gov account.
Important: The actions and steps outlined in the Applicant Management help articles may be completed both by the "EBiz POC" and by the "AOR with MPIN." For organizations using the Expanded AOR access level, all users with the AOR role have access to applicant management functionality.
Individual Applicants: If you are registered in Grants.gov as an individual (i.e., not applying on behalf of an organization), the Applicant Management do not apply to you. Review the Grants.gov Variations for Individual Applicants help article for more information.
