Grants.gov for Mac OS X
Grants.gov is the new unified clearinghouse for all federal grant opportunities from all federal agencies that manage grant funds. Grants.gov currently uses a Windows-only solution for electronic grant submission. The PureEdge viewer is required to complete grant application packages and, at this time, there is no native Macintosh PureEdge client.
IBM has acquired PureEdge, and now calls the product IBM Workplace Forms; IBM plans to add Mac support in the future and Grants.gov has committed to providing a cross-platform solution by November 2006. In the interim, Grants.gov, in conjunction with NIH, has created a Citrix server solution that allows Mac OS X users to complete their application packages using Mac OS X.
The University of Wisconsin has created a single preconfigured package for Mac OS X users to access this solution. This package is provided to the community as a service by the University of Wisconsin, and is not an official product of Grants.gov:
