Is EVAL a grants management system?

EVAL is designed to measure the impact of your research, and the flow of funds in and out of your institution (which is typically tracked within a grants management system) is just one data source that is tracked within the system. EVAL usually leverages a grants management system for grants received by center members, which are then linked to related EVAL data such as pilot grants, publications and shared resources.


What reporting features does EVAL provide?

Standard reports in EVAL include CCSG Data Tables 1 and 2, CTSA Common Metrics reports, and a constantly-evolving collection of operational reports and data visualizations. Additionally, customers can create their own custom reports, which can be shared across EVAL centers.


Who hosts EVAL? Does my IT team need to be involved?

EVAL is hosted by Forte, allowing you to get up and running quickly with no internal IT resources needed. This also allows for seamless system upgrades with no disruptions to your workflows. 


How long does it take to implement EVAL?

A typical EVAL implementation takes 3-5 months, but the system can be up and running in a matter of weeks. The remaining implementation time is typically used by customers to prepare their data for upload into the system and to develop internal workflows and processes for getting the most out of EVAL.
