Does GMS replace my primary accounting system?
GMS is not meant to replace the primary accounting systems of most organizations. It simply replaces the manual and spreadsheet methods that many Grant Administrators use to track grant-related expenditures. However, for small organizations, GMS could prove to be a viable alternative to more expensive, off-the-shelf accounting solutions.

Can GMS track matching contributions?
Yes, GMS can track and report on the various types of matching contributions. Activity reports can be created to reflect ALL costs associated with the activity — grant-funded AND matching contributions.

Can GMS track indirect costs?
Yes, depending on your requirements, indirect costs can be accounted for as a separate expense or as a percentage of each transaction.

Can GMS track multiple budgets at the same time?
Yes, budgets can be tracked by funding source, account code, site, program, or activity.

Can GMS report on different fiscal years?

Can GMS help to manage goals, objectives, and benchmarks and relate the associated activities?
