GAO’s recent report about Grants.gov has garnered a lot of coverage across the web and in print. Here are some of the links I’ve been following:
- Senators, GAO Criticize Grants.gov [National Journal]
- GAO: Grants.gov has serious weaknesses [Federal Computer Week]
- GAO: Grant application portal littered with technical problems [NextGov]
- GAO: Federal Grants Web Site Shows ‘Weaknesses’ [InformationWeek Government]
In addition, FederalNewsRadio reposts Grants.gov’s retraction regarding the system’s incompatibility with the Firefox web browser. Grants.gov can indeed be used with Firefox. I was surprised that the opposite had ever been considered true; I and thousands of others have been using Firefox for years and never encountered a major problem with Grants.gov. Anyway, it’s good that this is clarified now.
