For over two decades, the MAXIMUS Higher Education Practice of MAXIMUS, Inc. has specialized in providing research administration consulting services and software applications to colleges, universities, hospitals, and not-for-profit institutions. Serving over 150 academic research institutions, MAXIMUS provides expert assistance with preparation and negotiation of indirect cost and fringe rate proposals, space surveys and studies, pre and post award business process improvement and training, and compliance per federal OMB circulars A-21, A-110, A-122, and A-133.
The flagship product of the Higher Education Practice since 1988 has been the Comprehensive Rate Information System (CRIS). Over 75 of the top 100 research institutions use CRIS to automate and maximize their Facilities and Administrative (F&A) rate calculation. In 2000, MAXIMUS introduced two web-based products to the market: the Effort Reporting System (ERS) and WebSpace. WebSpace is used by over twenty universities to assist in the space functionalization study as required in OMB Circular A-21. More than 25 universities use ERS to automate and manage their effort certification process. In 2008, MAXIMUS introduced CRIS Short Form, for schools that submit their F&A Proposals under the Simplified Method for Small Institutions (section H in OMB Circular A-21). Over twenty universities use CRIS Short Form to automate and maximize their F&A rates.
This initiative between InfoEd and MAXIMUS will bring together the robust capabilities of InfoEd’s Enterprise Research Administration Software with MAXIMUS Effort Reporting System (ERS), a solution to help central and academic departments comply with increasingly complex federal regulations surrounding effort reporting and managing effort commitments. The combination will enhance ease of use for researchers, staff and administrative users of the MAXIMUS and InfoEd product suites.
The integration with MAXIMUS creates seamless access within the InfoEd product suite to MAXIMUS Effort Reporting System for managing, planning, tracking and reporting effort commitments from pre-award to close out of the project. Additional integration efforts focus on delivering committed effort details on sponsored projects from InfoEd’s Grants software in support of the Effort Tracking and Reporting Process. The synergies streamline effort in the Effort Tracking and Reporting process reducing the work required to aggregate information from disparate systems, increase data integrity in the process, enable institutions to be proactive rather than reactive, and facilitate compliance with Federal Regulations.
