National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)<br />About Us – Our Mission<br />IT Challenges - Reporting<br />IT Goals – Leadership Management Dashboard (LMD)<br />
NIFA - About Us – Our Mission<br />NIFA's unique mission is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs in the Land-Grant University System and other partner organizations. NIFA doesn't perform actual research, education, and extension but rather helps fund it at the state and local level and provides program leadership in these areas. <br />
IT Challenges - Reporting<br />How do we organize voluminous text based<br />agricultural reports so that NIFA staff and NIFA<br />partners can retrieve valuable information?<br />
IT Goals – LMD<br />Provide a tool allowing agricultural scientists (NPLs) and NIFA partners to efficiently perform analysis comparing outcomes and impacts across functions, knowledge areas, geographies, budget line items, and other categories while complying with transparency and accountability requirements.<br />
Other IT Goals – LMD<br /><ul><li> Develop a Tool to manage the grants lifecycle which</li></ul> substantially improved performance and obtain critical<br /> business intelligence from the national agricultural grants<br /> portfolio.<br /><ul><li> Use Agile Software Development Processes to build </li></ul> features and functionality. <br /><ul><li> Answer questions posed by Congress such as: What </li></ul> does the taxpayer get back when a $500,000<br /> agricultural research grant is awarded to a university?<br />
So What Is A Dashboard?<br /><ul><li>A dashboard is a user interface that, somewhat resembling an automobile's dashboard, organizes and presents information in a way that is easy to read.
A NIFA management tool that manages large volumes of data from grantees
Manages NIFA impacts, outputs, outcomes</li></li></ul><li>The History – The Old LMD Platform<br /><ul><li>Proprietary Oracle Portal platform from 2002-2010.
NPL LMD pilot/prototype started November 2006 utilizing 3 NPL’s to provide requirements.
Subsequent releases made in January and June, 2008, and March, 2009 – each release adding more features and new requirements.
Partner LMD released to a limited audience in August 2008 and January 2009. Partner LMD released to all – March 2009.</li></li></ul><li>The LMD Data Sources<br /><ul><li>The data in LMD primarily draws from 4 sources:
AREERA State Plan of Work (POW) Information System
Cooperative Research, Education, and Extension Management System (C-REEMS)
National Information Management and Support System (Multi State Hatch Projects)
This data is loaded into a data warehouse and then extracted, transformed, and loaded into data marts.</li></li></ul><li>Takeaways From Users – Old Oracle Platform<br /><ul><li>Dashboard assists NIFA scientists to view real time alerts of awarded projects.
Dashboard allows NIFA scientists to compare budget to program expenditures.
Dashboard assists NIFA scientists to prepare</li></ul> Accomplishment Reports.<br /><ul><li>Need better Ad-hoc filtering tools so that users can design own reports – on the fly.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>June 2010 – Go live with first phase of scalable open source platform that eliminates costly vendor lock-ins – while enabling more effective data sharing.
Scalable open source platform will enable users to generate customized reports faster and provide an interface that is easier to understand
We have plans to continue to add functionality and enhancements to the Dashboard approximately every 6-9 months.</li></ul>Where We Are Going?<br />
