If an agency has an active grant or has had a grant with DHSS in recent years, registration may not be necessary. Please contact your Agency Power User or your Grants Administrator to confirm if your agency and contact information already exists in GEMS. Creating duplicate agencies or contacts may cause errors.
If your agency is new to GEMS, your registration must be approved before you can submit an application. Agency Power Users must log in to assign permissions and invite other agency users into GEMS. Once permissions have been assigned, users must login using their myAlaska account to authenticate their identity.
Additional information for federally funded DHSS, DOH and DFCS grants: The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) consolidated eight of its existing circulars into one document. This document, titled 2 CFR Part 200 Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, commonly referred to as the Uniform Guidance. The Uniform Guidance was published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2013 and was effective December 26, 2014 for all federal award and pass-through federal awards (sub-awards to DHSS grantees). All procurements are based on procurement standards established in applicable OMB Circulars, state regulations, and statutes. Additional information on the Uniform Guidance and how it affects your federally funded DHSS/DOH/DFCS sub-award can be found at State of Alaska-Division of Finance and additional FAQs can be found at COFAR-FAQ's. The Uniform Guidance is a substantial document and is available in electronic format online at the e-CFR website here, 2 CFR Part 200.
