GAP : Grant Application Processor
Applications can be accepted in to the back office database on a continuous or a funding round basis, depending on the organisation's criteria. Depending on how the organisation assesses, processes and allocates funds the system can be set up to support these functions.
Below is an example of how the system works for a UK funding body supporting youth film production.
With assessors often based around the country, the system can allocate applications based on the the demographic of the applicant, reducing time and resources manually matching assessors to applicants. Once applications are allocated, assessors are alerted to the pending form which they access by logging in with their unique user name and password. Only applications assigned to them will be visible ready for them to score. Once the scoring is completed the application will go to the board for a final decision.
