The Government of Alberta will be conducting routine maintenance on some IT systems in November, including the Grants Administration Tracking and Evaluation (GATE) system. This means GATE will be temporarily unavailable for AFA clients to work on or submit grant applications from the evening of Friday, November 10 until the morning of Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
In response, the AFA has extended this year’s deadline for Arts Presenting project applications until Wednesday, November 22, 2017. Arts Presenting applicants are recommended to make note of the temporary GATE scheduled outage and the program deadline extension and adjust their application plans accordingly.
AFA clients planning to apply for funding through Organizations: Art Projects are also recommended to note the temporary GATE scheduled outage. The deadline for this funding opportunity remains December 1, 2017.
The AFA and the Government of Alberta value Albertans’ information and measures have been taken to ensure information entered into GATE is protected and will be preserved during the scheduled maintenance.
If you have any questions, please contact the consultant associated with your funding program.
