The Grants Management Intelligence (GMI) newsletter was launched in late 2002 as an Australian-first: a unique, home-grown publication designed to radically improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Australian grantmakers and funders.
The publication began its life as The Australian Best Practice Grantmaking Quarterly but was rebranded and relaunched in December 2006 as Grants Management Quarterly (GMQ).
After almost eight years as GMQ, the publication underwent a make-over late in 2014 in line with the overhaul of the AIGM's website.
In addition to being renamed Grants Management Intelligence, the publication also changed its structure in order to focus on a single topical grantmaking issue in each edition.
Since 2014, GMI has provided in-depth examinations of grantmaking-related issues, offering information, advice, best practice guidance and perspectives which draw on knowledge built up over the AIGM's 10+ years of existence, backed up by data drawn from our own sources as well as from SmartyGrants, Australia's leading grants management solution.
The AIGM's exclusive access to millions of pieces of SmartyGrants data has allowed GMI and the AIGM to develop benchmarks in a number of grantmaking areas in which there has previously been a lack of solid data.
