Overview of Terms and Conditions Module (TCM)

The Terms and Conditions Module (TCM) enables funding agencies to define and manage structured terms and conditions that can be applied to the grants they administer, and to track due dates and recipient document submissions for the terms that require follow-up.

TCM also enables funding organizations to track due dates and submit supporting documents to satisfy the terms and conditions of their grant applications.

The terms of a grant are the legal requirements imposed on the grant by the administering agency, whether based on statute, regulation, policy, or other document referenced in the grant award, or specified by the grant award document itself. The Notice of Award (NoA) may include both standard and special conditions that are considered necessary to attain the grant's objectives, facilitate post-award administration of the grant, conserve grant funds, or otherwise protect the Federal Government's interests.
