The purpose of a Grant Award Modification (GAM) is to update award details, modifying key facts or details about the award. A request for a modification to a key element of a funded award may be initiated by the entity but must be approved by DOJ personnel.
There are three categories of GAMs — programmatic, financial, and project period extension.
GAMs can be created to extend the project period, update the project scope, seek approval of programmatic costs, modify the budget, or request sole-source approval.
