The Office of Grants Compliance (OGC) was established as a service department under the Legal Division to provide a focal point for the City of Memphis to enhance its internal compliance with applicable grant policies, rules, and regulations by providing comprehensive oversight of all City grants and facilitation of improved administration and responsible stewardship of federal, state, and private grant funds.
The core objectives of the office are to:
- Ensure compliance with all federal, state, and private grant funds
- Ensure the existence and implementation of proper internal controls
- Identify grant opportunities and potential grant partnering agencies
- Streamline the grant application and award process
The Office of Grants Compliance has two (2) core areas of service:
For Compliance services, OGC is responsible for examining program and funding compliance with federal, state, and private grant requirements. OGC also conducts annual and random onsite monitoring reviews, and provides assistance to each division during formal site visits by grantor agencies.
For Administration services, OGC assists with the processing of grant applications, awards, and the pursuit of grant opportunities.
