For something inexpensive and maily pre-award:

GrantManager

Find out if your finance office uses Banner.  The pre-award grant module
for Banner is an interesting, simple tool.

Last I heard, both InfoEd and RAMS-FIE sold pre-award versions of their
systems (I think 3 modules, rather than the entire system).

Also Virginia Commonwealth University built a system in Access that was/is
pre-award.  They are moving on, eventually, to a system that links with
post-award (but the person who developed the system put a lot of work into
it and has explored passing it on to other universities for a small fee).
The great thing about Access is it is self-maintainable. 804/828-6772 Call
Betty Browder!

Good luck!
