System133© was built for one purpose: To significantly reduce the administrative burden placed on PTE’s when faced with managing a vast portfolio of Grantees who need Management Decision Letters issued in response to Findings on their grants. Designed around a wish list of features by veteran Grants Professionals, System133© is a singular, organized workspace designed to make life easier for PTE’s.
The workspace is a filterable, sortable, customizable workspace that gives instant access to all the critical data needed to manage this once time consuming process. Contact information, EIN’s, status, and even AFR documentation are available with a click or a filter. System133 maintain the needed information from last three fiscal years of FACs data on hand, all without ever having to search FACs.
By leveraging the experience and expertise of Grants Management professionals, we created a standardized, logic enabled form for creating Management Decision letters. We also made it possible to use this standardized form to be issued not just one, but ALL of your Grantees who require an MDL. One at a time or all at once, your call.
Each grantee is “rolodexed” for you, with all of their important information filed neatly away for you, with quick digital access to their AFR documentation, and your agencies notes about them on file, but without a filing cabinet.
In addition to workspaces for agencies, each Grantee has access to System133 as well. Account creation is automated, and each grantee will be notified via email to log in. Not only can they perform tasks (like create or submit Corrective Action Plans), but they can receive direct messages from their PTE.
System133 is sold as annual subscription service, and is classified under DIR as an eProcurement, SaaS subscription service. BFS offers all DIR customers a 5.00% discount off of the retail or MSRP price. For organizations interested in purchasing more users, please contact us to discuss pricing.
