Grant Administration and Operations

The Grant Administration and Operations department is an expert team trained in Grant Administration, Compliance, Procurement, Contract Administration, and Financial Management.

Our goal is to make the best use of resources in order to aid and supplement the educational mission of the California Community Colleges, and to ensure the proper disbursement of grant funds and management of activities with full transparency for all stakeholders.

The operations team is responsible for non-programmatic support of the CCC Technology Center’s programs and products, grant procurement and management, and the enabling of Technology Center team projects. We operate using updated, cloud-based software in a distributed, remote environment.

Library Services: The Technology Center manages the vendor contracting process to provide library database services to all 116 colleges. The current contract is with EBSCO, selected after an open RFP process in 2022.

The California Community Colleges Technology Center is housed at Butte College.Contact Us
