Posting Information about Grants and Contracts

What It Is

Every organization that provides grants or has contracting opportunities should provide information about those opportunities on its website and link to appropriate cross-agency portals. This is a best practice for managing your agency’s website.

Why It’s Important

The President's Management Agenda makes it a priority to standardize and automate the grants application process and to centralize federal contracting opportunities in cross-agency portals. All federal organizations must support those portals.

How to Implement

  • Organizations that post grants information should link to grants.gov.
  • Organizations that post contracts information should link to federal portal(s) with contracting information related to that organization.
  • If an organization has significant grants or contracts available, it may be appropriate to showcase that information-or a link to that information-on the homepage.
  • Web content managers should conduct usability studies to determine the best terms to use and places to locate this information.


Many federal public websites follow this best practice. This practice is part of the guidelines and best practices published by the Interagency Committee on Government Information to aid agencies' implementation of OMB Policies for Public Websites.
