Integra recently completed a performance and technical evaluation of the implementation of the Foreign Assistance Coordination and Tracking System (FACTS Info) Next Generation (NextGen) project, instituted by the Office of US Foreign Assistance Resources (F). FACTS Info serves as the central information system for all foreign assistance budgeting, operational planning, and performance management processes overseen by F and stands at the nexus of F and operating units worldwide. Integra was contracted to identify the technical and functionality issues within the FACTS Info System, as well as any managerial areas of needed improvement. The evaluation, awarded in September 2015, was conducted over the course of five months, awarded under MOBIS Schedule 874.
Integra LLC and its subcontractor, Sonjara Inc., conducted an extensive assessment of the system’s technical and management factors, and identified accomplishments and challenges encountered within the project to date. As part of the evaluation, the team recommended practical solutions to the senior management at F and the FACTS Info NextGen project team, to assist them in meeting their implementation schedule for CY 2016.
Integra hopes that the evaluation and recommendations provided will help the client to prioritize and implement both short-term and long-term corrective plans towards improved performance in project and people management practices, while maintaining the current schedule of deployment of the FACTS NG system.
