Since 2014, Parthenon Management Group (PMG) has been providing strategic planning guidance to scientific organizations who have federal grant/cooperative agreements with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). PMG staff is experienced in all financial, compliance, communications, and reporting aspects of grant management. Our grant management team has served as a catalyst with engaging constituents related to the grants that we manage and serving as a liaison with the organizations and government officials. The projects that we work on support meaningful public health issues such as women who have had exposures during pregnancy and breastfeeding as well as the opioid crisis in rural communities. Outlined below are some of the types of support that we offer our grant management clients:
- Identify collaborations with local and national partners to engage with to advance the mission of the grant.
- Technical assistance and supplement coordination with both federal-level and community-level grantees.
- Guidance on federal regulations, grant reviews, government agencies, and requirements specific to national programs.
- Coordination of fulfilling performance measurables tied back to the goals of the federal grant.
