Federal grant program managers are faced with reduced staff and increased reporting and oversight responsibilities to ensure the highest return on Federal grant investments. They need capabilities to do more with less.
In 2017, Dovel piloted the use of Machine Learning tools to improve the efficiencies of grants processes and provide greater insight into the risks associated with program delivery.
By unifying data from government systems and the public domain, we provided capabilities that help grantors eliminate or significantly reduce time spent on administrative tasks and increase the focus on activities that deliver the greatest value to the grants mission. While these tools are still maturing, they hold the promise to transform the way that Federal grants are awarded and managed in the years ahead.
