Yes. Awards should be accepted within 45 days of the award date. The Authorized Representative must log in to JustGrants, locate the new award in their Worklist, and accept the award by the due date.
Note: The Entity Administrator may need to update the Authorized Representative and assign a Grant Award Administrator and Financial Manager before the Authorized Representative can complete award acceptance. Contact your DOJ Grant Manager with any questions.
The start date of the award is listed in the Project Information section of the award package.
Award conditions are terms and conditions that are included with the award. Award recipients will view and accept all award conditions as part of their funded Award Package. Award conditions may include requirements covering areas such as programmatic and financial reporting, prohibited uses of federal funds, consultant rates, changes in key personnel, and proper disposition of program income.
Some award conditions may be based on the program or the nature of the award itself. Regardless of the grant-making component or the award, there are several mandatory award conditions that will be included on any DOJ award.
Some conditions require action in order to satisfy them. Those conditions that still require further action are marked as “no,” not in compliance yet in JustGrants.
