Update on NBRSSConfiguration Phase to Begin
The NIH Business and Research Support System (NBRSS) now encompasses both the NIH Business System (NBS) and the Enterprise Human Resources and Payroll (EHRP) project.
The NBS is concluding the design phase of the project, which encompasses the development of models for business processes in the functional areas of financial management, travel, service and supply fund, research and development contracts, acquisition and supply, and property. After months of weekly meetings, the NBS Functional Teams, in conjunction with their respective advisory groups, are finishing up the design, review, and approval of the future processes so they can forge ahead into the next phase of the project, configuration.
The configuration phase of the NBS comprises two Conference Room Pilots (CRP), which are controlled environments where the Oracle Application software and NIH workflow procedures will be configured and tested.

The team has recently installed the DHHS’s development version of the PeopleSoft product and is formulating plans for conducting a functional-fit analysis with participation from NIH EHRP stakeholders. The purpose of the functional-fit analysis is to evaluate where the DHHS-configured version of PeopleSoft meets ("fits") and does not meet ("gaps") NIH’s business requirements. Where gaps are identified, solutions for addressing them will be proposed for consideration by the NIH EHRP stakeholders.
