IET continues to partner with the Office of Research to identify and implement a ?cradle-to-grave? transaction processing system that will create, track, and manage research proposals and grants for the campus. Currently, this is a very labor-intensive process for UC Davis with little automation. Several ERA products exist, but the project team is interested in a system that accommodates UC Davis? academic and administrative functional requirements, is cost effective, and can be easily integrated into the campus environment.
