D'Art topics in Arts Policy no.35, September 2008
IFACCA and Australia Council for the Arts
This report analyses the length of time it takes for arts funding agencies to complete a grants giving process, from application closing date (or receipt of applications) through to notifying applicants of results.
The short report presents data for both peer-assessed and non-peer-assessed grantmaking systems, and for both project and annual/multi year grants. The report also provides figures for three stages of the grant administration process:
• processing applications
• review and assessment (includes assessment time and meeting time)
• processing the results/notification
