GO! Launched for DC Government

comment : Off

This month, I oversaw the launch of Lux’s Grant Operations (GO!) System for the District of Columbia Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED).  DC grant managers for the New Communities Initiatives, Great Streets, and other programs will now receive paperless applications and run a paperless application review process.  I am thrilled with this new deployment, which we based on code I wrote ten years ago for an earlier version of the system that helped NASA evaluate student internship applications.  Then, as now, the dashboards and metrics generated from the system were critical.  Now GO! is delivered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), so DC doesn’t have any worries about any installation or maintenance.  My team and I deploy GO! in the cloud and are on hand to make any changes needed to help DC award grants quickly and fairly.  Read more about the Grants & Technical Assistance and Web Applications & Services practice areas.
