ARGIS
Academic Research & Grants Information System (ARGIS)
As one of America's leading metropolitan research institutions, the University of Central Florida (UCF) needed a research administration system capable of managing its vast and growing research while simultaneously providing individual researchers, department chairs, college deans, and other managers with the vital information required.

The Academic Research and Grants Information System (ARGIS) is a fully relational, highly functional application that truly represents unique developments in web-based technology, particularly in the use of databases to drive page layout, design, user interface, and backend services. ARGIS is a fully web-based information system that also connects and interfaces with other university ERP systems to provide a single point to access research information for all stakeholders.

APIMS Army Project Information Management System (APIMS)
The Army Project Information Management System (APIMS) was created to streamline the submission and review of proposal submissions to published Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs). Users can submit their proposal through the online system, designated evaluators can review the submission against a list of established criteria, then using Parametric Decision Making, the reporting functions provide for a sensitivity analysis of how the proposals have been rated. The system also is used to notify submitters of acceptance and continues all the way through award of the project. During the award phase, the system provides a means to upload Monthly Reports and other project related documents to keep the government informed of the project's progress.

DMSCAT Defense M&S Catalog
https://www.msco.mil/DoDTools/DoDEnterpriseManagementTools/MSCatalog.aspx
Organizations supported by M&S need visibility into the tools, data and services that meet their requirements. This visibility is established through a discovery process that has, at its core, a search capability. As such, the DoD M&S Steering Committee commissioned the creation of the Defense M&S Catalog to establish a web-based search capability, which provides a "card catalog" level of detail about M&S tools, data, and services. Data owners may use the Enterprise Metacard Builder Resource (EMBR) Portal to create metacards and publish them to the M&S Catalog, or use a System-to-System method if they already have a repository of their own in place.

DoD Management Enterprise System
The DoD Management Enterprise System is a web-based tool used to submit, vet, and track projects from their initial submission status through their funding and project management process.  It supports the various DoD and service level communities by allowing individual organizations within each to create their own specialized calls, their own review teams, and customize their own forms and reports for project tracking and vetting.

 DSVT DoD Standards Vetting Tool (DSVT)
The DoD M&S Standards Vetting Tool is a web-based tool used to track, discuss, and vote on Modeling and Simulation standards nominations. The term "Standard" is applied in the broadest context to include procedures, practices, processes, techniques, data, and algorithms.  A potential standard may, but not necessarily, be already recognized by a standards organization such as ISO or IEEE. If a specific standard, accepted by the M&S community, is later approved as a government or DoD standard, it will be identified as being approved by a higher authority.  Any individual may nominate a new M&S standard. The then tool supports the 7-stage vetting and review process to determine if the standard should be adopted.  Using a common tool and process provides not only for consistency, but joint collaboration amongst M&S organizations as well.  The tool supports the vetting process for the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Joint Forces, and DoD modeling and simulation offices.  The SVT is also part of the Modeling & Simulation Coordination Office’s (MSCO) enterprise tool suite.

DVDT DoD Verification, Validation & Accreditation Documentation Tool (DVDT)
The DoD VV&A Documentation Tool (DVDT) addresses the need to capture VV&A information in a consistent form with consistent content. The DVDT supports the various DoD- and Service-level Communities by producing standardized VV&A documentation and meeting net-centric architecture requirements for sharing, discovering, and retrieving VV&A information within the Global Information Grid (GIG) Enterprise.
The DVDT automates the standardized DoD VV&A documentation templates formalized in the DoD Standard Practice Documentation of Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) for Models and Simulations (MIL-STD-3022).

Automation of the templates saves producers time by expediting the VV&A documentation production process and ensuring standardization of content and format across DoD and the Military Departments.

FCN Survey FCN Nurse Education Survey
The Florida Center for Nursing is a state entity charged with tracking and projecting the state’s dynamic nursing needs and recommending solutions for imbalances in nurse supply and demand. The Nurse Education Survey provides them with a means to gather information from all the nursing programs in the state annually to learn about the state’s education capacity, barriers to program expansion, and nurse faculty supply and demand.  Comprised of multiple sections tailored to each individual program each school may have, a unique login and data record for each school, and an administrative interface that allows the center to track which schools have completed or started a survey, this application has become an integral part in their data gathering.

MSRR Modeling & Simulation Resource Repository (MSRR)
The Modeling& Simulation Resource Repository is part of a DoD-wide system of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) databases that allows users to discover, access, and obtain M&S resources in support of military assessments, training, and acquisition.  It is a web-based application that provides users the ability to search or brose a catalog of records containing descriptions of models, simulations, databases, tools/utilities, standards, publications, points of contact, and related web sites.  The MSRR was developed to foster the reusability and interoperability of M&S applications and databases to reduce redundancy and developmental costs.

IST Timesheet Institute for Simulation & Training Timesheet System
Developed to support the tracking of effort on sponsored projects, the IST Time Sheet system allows employees to enter their time to be charged on one or more contracts and grants each pay period.   Limitations for hours charged can be managed per account number, by person, by pay period or for total hours that may be charged.  These settings are individually managed by Principle Investigators/Managers responsible for each account.  Once the timesheet data has been entered for the pay period, the data is automatically transmitted to UCF Payroll department to charge the appropriate accounts.  This electronic system replaced a labor intensive manual/hard-copy process of tracking time against particular efforts.
