Coordination with OPM  Assisted OPM development efforts in two areas: • Competency Model for Grants Management (released September 2009) • Proposed issuance of a new classification series (1109) for the Grants Management workforce − Flysheet drafted / agency comment period closed at the end of June, 2010 − OPM currently drafting responses to comments received as it moves toward finalizing series flysheet for agency implementation

 Continued coordination with OPM on work group’s training and certification efforts

Ensuring a Well-Trained Grants Management Workforce Federal grants management workforce has been characterized by a lack of a standardized structure across the government with insufficient certification and continuous learning requirements, which has led to: • Inconsistent application of government-wide requirements across Federal agencies • Barriers to communication and collaboration between agency grants management professionals • Lack of professional recognition for a highly skilled workforce • Unclear career path for grants management professionals within the Federal government

Current Focus & Future Plans  Current Focus: Preparing a business case that captures the reasoning and benefits of establishing government-wide training and certification  Future Plans: • Refining competencies • Defining career paths • Developing curricula • Delineating the certification process • Coordinating and conducting communications and outreach
