Quick Win Work Package Example

Quick Win 1*:

Eliminate additional approvals once juries or committees and section heads/officers have made granting decisions for all research grants under $60,000. Program officers submit requests for payment directly to Finance. The list of successful applicants and awarded amounts will be circulated for information purposes only.

Anticipated Benefits

  • Average reduction of several weeks in the elapsed time between competition deadline and announcement of successful grant recipients of great importance to Agency clients. In many cases, this time reduction would be at least two months.
  • Significantly improved accountability of peers and Program Officers for their granting decisions. The Board and Agency management will also send a clear ‘vote of confidence’ in the work of peers and Agency staff.   
  • Small     reduction in the time required to prepare documents and covering letters for signature (‘information copies’ will still be sent to the same managers, however, the process will no longer be held up awaiting reviews and approvals). Additional time of Admin. Assistants will be saved in following up on the progress of decisions awaiting signature.
