GrantsCo funds ideas and projects to provide public services and wants to use a framework that is composed of assets needed for the standard processes of GrantsCo.

To achieve this goal, the coordinator at GrantsCo wants to extend the framework so that it meets the specific divisional needs of providing grants. To begin the process, the coordinator outlines an application setup process to achieve an implementation layer that is specific to GrantsCo to further outline a workflow that increases user engagement with the grants that GrantsCo provides.
