What is the Accessioning System Consolidation Project?
The goal of this project is to analyze the requirements, develop, and implement a facility-wide single accessioning system currently fulfilled by the CSAS, Yellow Task systems as well as the TSA process.
What is the timeline for the project?
Currently the goal is to have a schedule developed in the first quarter of 2015. We will have a better understanding of the overall timeline for the project once the budget, COTS solutions and schedule have been approved by the project sponsor.
Who is on the team? Who is on the Steering Committee?
The project team will be comprised of subject matter experts from C&SS, Contract Planning and Administration, Finance and Business Information Systems. During subsequent phases of the project additional team members may be added. The steering committee is comprised of senior NCI and contractor management, including representatives from the NCI/OSO, NCI/MOSB, Leidos Biomed and DMS.
How will the outcome of this project impact my job as a requestor, program manager, AO, etc.?
