Building off of CBIS’s previous year-in-review, this presentation would use the significant datasets available to our data team to analyze spending trends, give attendees a snapshot of key federal agencies and their spending habits, and use our analytical tools to forecast out potential spending. Because of our company’s competencies, we would also marry our data analysis with reporting from our writers who are deeply familiar with breaking news stories and upcoming changes that could radically affect recipient funding.
We would also tackle some of the more salient interest points from last year’s presentation, including the effects of the political affiliation of a state compared to its grants funding, and how having a major university can skew your state’s funding numbers.
The goal is for attendees to both understand the broad scope of federal spending, and to give specific examples to them that will allow them to have actionable insights to take back to their company, county, state agency, or organization, and better understand the world of grants as they reach out for funding.
GPC Competencies Addressed:
How to research, identify, and match funding resources to meet specific needs
Methods and strategies that cultivate and maintain relationships between fund-seeking and recipient organizations and funders
Practices and services that raise the level of professionalism of grant developers
