IC-Specific Data

Addressing individual needs

in an enterprise manner

the issue
The Issue
  • There is no single NIH process that all the ICs use for their grant-related activities
    • ICs each have their own unique activities and data related to grants
      • For example, grant coding (or indexing) is done quite differently within different ICs
      • Not only is the process different, but even the codes themselves vary

A miracle has occurred…

IMPAC II data and applications successfully address most NIH-wide grant processing needs.

However, the ICs are still independent entities…

individuality is a wonderful thing but it comes at a price
Individuality is a wonderful thing, but it comes at a price
  • Internal IC grant handling processes vary widely – each has separate workflow and coding schemes.
  • This makes it difficult to address the ICs’ internal grant processing requirements with a single NIH-wide application or set of data.

Thus…
  • The ICs each download IMPAC II data, combine it with their internal data, then continue with their separate business processes
what can we do
What can we do?
  • Find IC processes and associated data requirements that are similar (e.g., common data needs) and work directly with the ICs to acquire and use these data from a single, central source

This will allow NIH to gradually move to fewer dissimilar ways of doing business

On careful analysis a different view emerges
  • Internal IC grant handling processes vary in the details – All ICs use the same general workflow.
  • Each IC either has or wants a scientific indexing scheme for analyzing and reporting their science.
  • The overall workflows used by the ICs are similar enough that a consensus developing process has a high likelihood of being successful in developing an NIH-wide database and application.
specific steps needed
Specific Steps Needed
  • Obtain a composite view of the “external” data needed by ICs for their extramural business processes
    • Identify the IMPAC II data (OLTP and IRDB) that’s being downloaded by each IC and determine how it is used
    • Identify other data sources required
specific steps needed continued
Specific Steps Needed (Continued)
  • Determine the local (i.e., IC-specific) data needed by each IC for their extramural business processes
    • Identify grant coding/indexing data and techniques used by each IC
    • Identify other IC-specific data needed
specific steps needed continued1
Specific Steps Needed (Continued)
  • Work with each IC to begin using this common, centrally-stored data base structure
  • Design and develop an Oracle database structure to accommodate the IC-specific data
  • Provide applications as required to supplement existing IC applications
