STEP 3: OBTAIN USERNAME & PASSWORD
HAVE YOU OBTAINED YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD?
PURPOSE OF THIS STEP:
HOW LONG SHOULD IT TAKE?
WHY DO I NEED TO OBTAIN A USERNAME & PASSWORD?
When you register with ORC, you will create a username and a password which allows you to register with Grants.gov as an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR). Once your organization’s E-Business Point of Contact (E-Biz POC) has assigned these rights, you will be authorized to submit grant applications on behalf of your organization.
Remember to write down your username and password. You will need it to complete your registration, as well as to submit all of your applications at Grants.gov.Your organization must already be registered with the Central Contractor Registry (CCR) and have a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number to complete this step. Currently, Grants.gov supports only one DUNS number per credential but future enhancements will provide for multiple DUNS numbers per credential.
