Effortless Grant Tracking

Track the employees, consumables and samples associated with a specific grant

Does your grant manager spend hours preparing NIJ grant reports? Do lab staff use a spreadsheet to track activities for grant reporting?  Are errors occasionally discovered, requiring lab staff to take hours or even days away from processing cases to fix them?  Would it save you and your team time and exasperation if all of that was completely automated?

STACS-CW Enterprise completely automates grant tracking as part of its regular, extensive audit trail.

Labs can capture grant-funded processing statistics for NIJ and other funding organizations and for lab management.

Your lab can automatically track and allocate the following to specific grants or other funding sources or contracts:

  • purchased consumables
  • staff employee hours
  • contract employee hours
  • overtime hours
  • performance statistics such as the number of samples processed, profiles developed and profiles entered into CODIS

The grant manager saves time as all grant-related data is automatically captured. Grant reports are fully customizable, making it easy and fast to generate exactly the reports required by lab management and the oversight board. And analysts can focus on working cases instead of spreadsheets, since the details of their work are automatically tracked and assigned to the appropriate funding source.

Grant reports are fully customizable, making it easy and fast to generate exactly the reports required by lab management and the oversight board.

How it works

A Grant Tracker ‘switch’ is automatically set to ‘On’ for grant-funded users, and can be turned on manually for any other user. These users’ activities are automatically recorded against the selected grant. No other actions are required. There is no limit to the number of grants that can be tracked.

STACS-CW Enterprise notifies a grant-funded user if their assigned grant is nearing its end date and the user is prompted to assign a new grant. The user can specify the desired number of days’ notice, and the end date of the grant can be changed if the grant is extended.
