About GMBoK


GMBoK Training: Grants Management Body of Knowledge (GMBoK) Training provides an in-depth understanding of the full grants management lifecycle, from solicitation to application evaluation to the closeout and audit phases. It covers the laws, regulations, and policies affecting federal compliance while calling specific attention to recent changes affecting the administration of federal awards. NGMA offers three GMBoK Trainings per year: one in-person training (spring) and two virtual trainings (summer and fall). Private virtual GMBoK Trainings may be scheduled for groups of 25 or more.

The GMBoK Guide is a foundational resource for grants management professionals at all career levels. Members have free access to a searchable online version of the GMBoK Guide. A hard copy of the Guide is included with Training registration. The GMBoK Guide may also be purchased on its own.

"Thank you again for sharing your grants management knowledge and experience with our team. Overwhelmingly, the response from our team has been positive. We attended several meetings last week where the training was brought up spontaneously by attendees who remarked on how much they had learned.
You did a great job! Thank you."
