The Cabinet Office has awarded digital consultancy AND Digital with a £4.2 million contract to run a pilot of a grants applicant portal.

The project is aimed at making it easier for charities to apply for grants under government schemes.

Under a contract set to run until the end of March next year, the company will support the beta phase.

In the market notice published last November, the Cabinet Office said it wanted to provide a single ‘go to’ place to find or apply for grants.

It indicated that the pilot would focus on increasing awareness of funding opportunities and distributing funds more widely in line with the levelling up agenda. Part of this will involve automating the pre-award due diligence.
