Burke making sure NEA fulfills its grant-making mission
Tuesday - 6/15/2010, 3:16pm EDT
Burke, who has been the agency's CIO for almost 10 years, says NEA made all $50 million in awards in a matter of months because its people had systems that met their needs.
But Burke also knows that the NEA grants management system needs updating. In fact, NEA will begin using the National Endowment for the Humanities back-end grants management system later this year.
Burke says NEH's system meets their needs with only minor modifications. He says the data migration part is about 90 percent done.
Another priority for NEA is using geospatial data to develop a mashup tool. Burke says the map would show the communities across the country which are using NEA's grant money. That geospatial system should be running by the end of June.
