The British Academy is introducing a new online Grants Management System: Flexi-Grant

The British Academy is pleased to announce the implementation of its new Grants Management System, Flexi-Grant, which is currently being developed with Fluent Technology, and will replace the e-GAP2 system from 1 August 2017.

This new system will provide the Academy with a modern grants management solution and the improved features will offer a better user experience.

Flexi-Grant will go live on 1 August 2017 using a phased approach and the estimated timetable for opening calls for various schemes is listed below.

Please be aware that once schemes are opened in FlexiGrant it will not be possible to apply to them via e-GAP2.

Applications that are already being administered, and assessed, in e-GAP2 will continue to be managed using e-GAP2 until the final decision has been reached. Awards will then be migrated into Flexi-Grant.

All active user accounts that already exist in e-GAP2 will be migrated to Flexi-Grant so users will be able to access the new system with their current details. It will only be necessary to register in Flexi-Grant if an account is not already held in e-GAP2 .

Current active awards will be migrated from e-GAP2 into Flexi-Grant from 1 August 2017.

This page will be updated on a regular basis and we advise that you visit our homepage, and sign up to our mailing list to learn more in the coming weeks about the forthcoming changes.
