Grant Management Software System

Streamlyne is an efficient and streamlined system to be utilized for faster grant application review and submission processing. The providing vendor is Vivantech, a software company based in San Diego, CA.

The primary objective of the implementation of Streamlyne at NJIT is to alleviate the legacy paper processing related to Research Administration Proposal, Awards, and Compliance. A major benefit of adopting Streamlyne is that the framework is designed to work with information about system users (roles and responsibilities) to support workflow. The complete implementation of Streamlyne at NJIT will allow paperless submission and processing of transmittal/approval sheets, conflicts of Interest form, budgets, and research compliance documents for approvals from Institutional Review Board (IRB), Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), and Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC). Furthermore, users would be able to see the status of specific research proposal or grant online anytime anywhere for any approval or monitoring task.

Streamlyne is accommodating NJIT’s grant proposal submission and award needs. The implementation is currently being conducted in phases according to the following functional modules:

  1. Pre Award – Creation and routing of proposals, including proposal budgets and submission to Grants.gov.
  2. Award- Maintenance of funded projects from award notification to closeout, including hierarchy, time & money and award budget.
  3. Negotiation- Tracking of communication relevant to other Streamlyne documents or stand-alone activities.
  4. Sub Award- Tracking of outgoing sub awards and generating sub award templates.
  5. Conflict Of Interest (COI)- Financial entities submission and maintenance, disclosure preparation and submission.
  6. Internal Review Board (IRB)- Committee Creation, Protocol Preparation and Submission, Protocol Review, Committee Meeting Management and Reporting.
  7. Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC)- Committee Creation, Protocol Preparation and Submission, Protocol Review, Committee Meeting Management and Reporting.
  8. Streamlyne -Banner System Integration- Communication method between Streamlyne and Banner for future use of Account Creation and Budget Adjustment.
