NexSys - Next Generation Grant, Application and Cash Management

NEXSYS Logo Small

The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is replacing the Michigan Electronic Grants System PLUS (MEGS+) grant management system and Cash Management System (CMS) payment system with NexSys. NexSys allows users to maintain grant applications and submit for award reimbursement in a single system.

  • NexSys will launch in February 2021 and applications going live in February 2021 and thereafter will be completed in NexSys.
  • In June of 2021, NexSys will replace MDE’s current Cash Management System.
  • The complete MEGS+ transition to NexSys will take approximately one year. MEGS+ is planned to be retired in the first quarter of 2022.
  • Applications currently in MEGS+ will remain for the life of the application; they will not be converted to NexSys.
 
Benefits of NexSys
  • One system for both grant management and payment
  • MICIP interface (District Portfolio API)
  • All the same features and functions of MEGS+ in an upgraded platform
  • Enhanced look and feel
  • Customizable user dashboard for ease in monitoring application activities
  • Application Status bar for ease in tracking status of applications in progress
