Tempest-GEMS - Grant Expense Management System


Tempest-GEMS is a grant expense management system designed for US federal grants. Tempest-GEMS simplifies financial tracking. It collects and collates required documents. It advises users if they are missing documents. The application includes policy self-assessment tools. And, it scores the compliance of each procurement effort.
