Final Report


The Engineering Education and Centers division of the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C. is looking to improve the efficiency of their panel selection process. Our project team developed a semi-automated workflow management system using SharePoint 2010, along with training materials to assist staff in learning the system. Interviews and demonstrations with EEC employees helped us refine the system to fit the needs of the division. By adopting this system the EEC’s panel selection process should achieve greater efficiency.
