UIDP Survey | What tools do universities use to search for federal grant opportunities?

The need to more rapidly and efficiently search for federal grants has become paramount for universities. Grant searching tools which incorporate machine learning to automatically search for federal grants (by research sector and by matching university research profiles) and that provide daily or weekly reports could prove highly useful. See the survey report.

In a survey fielded to university membership May 1-8, 2020, UIDP found that that a strong majority (71%) use these tools.

Among those who use these tools, the Pivot product has the most users in our group (75%). SPIN is the second-most used tool among respondents.
