End to end system solution

The current in-house research system will be superseded by a new research module within the current financial system (Agresso Business World).   This new module, Agresso Research Costing & Pricing (ARCP), will incorporate Awards Management (AAM) functionality and enable the application and award processes.  ARCP will interface with an improved Project Costing & Billing (PCB) module to enable the post-award processes.  The integration of both modules will enable a seamless flow within the end to end research management support process.
