MAGIC'S e-Grants Portal
MAGIC & SPAHRS System Maintenance- Posted 7/16/2018
DFA recently purchased new MAGIC hardware to replace the hardware implemented seven years ago. Hardware is the technical equipment that runs the MAGIC software. The new hardware should allow MAGIC to run faster, allow for future growth, and provide real-time disaster recovery replication. Once implemented, there should be no changes in MAGIC functionality.
In order to implement the new hardware, MAGIC & SPAHRS will be down starting at 3:00 PM on Friday, August 3, 2018. Both systems will not be available until Monday, August 5, 2018. You will be notified when the systems are available.
MAGIC’s “e-Grants” is the State of Mississippi’s Grants Management access portal. The e-Grants Work Center is the central location in MAGIC for administering and managing the grant process. MAGIC’s e-Grant functionality is used by individuals, organizations, and other governmental entities that apply for grant funding from state government agencies in Mississippi.
A state agency is considered a “Grantor” when it is awarding funding to private individuals, organizations, or other sub-recipients. “Grantee,” “Applicant,” “Sub-Grantee” and “Sub-recipient” are terms used for entities applying for and receiving grant funding from a state agency in Mississippi. Sub-Grantees are also referred to as Vendors/Suppliers in MAGIC as this is the terminology used for any entity receiving a payment.
Registration for Sub-Grantees
Potential sub-grantees must register in MAGIC as grant applicants. Registered grant applicants, can access the following tasks in the MAGIC e-Grants Work Center:
- Create/Submit Application Form to apply for grant funds with a Grantor state agency
- Create/Submit Grantor Claim Form
- Create/Submit Grantor Change Request Form
Click here to register on-line as a sub-grantee: State of Mississippi Sub-Grantee Registration. If you are already a sub-grantee in MAGIC, you will receive a duplicate error message. Please call the MMRS Call Center at 601-359-1343, Option 2 for assistance in locating your sub-grantee information. MAGIC assigns each potential sub-grantee a user name and temporary password, and notifies the potential sub-grantee of the name and password via emails. Once an email arrives, the potential sub-grantee will then complete the registration process in MAGIC and a vendor number will be assigned.
If you are unable to register on-line, you will need to complete the Supplier/Sub-Grantee Registration Form and contact the State of Mississippi agency you desire to do business with to complete the registration process.
Updates after Registration
A grantee administrator contact change can be requested by completing the Supplier/Grantee Self-Service Request for Change form, and submitting the form by clicking on the Submit button in the upper right hand corner of the form. You can also fax the form to: 601-359-6551.
