OASH and the Transition to Total eGM

In 2012, LCG helped the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office for the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) transition its Objective Review Committee (ORC) applications to a total Electronic Grants Management System (eGM) review process. Using the Application Review Module (ARM), a cloud-based system developed by LCG, review panel discussions were conducted via webinar. OASH realized a significant cost savings without any disruption to the review process. Subsequent technology upgrades to video conferencing have helped to provide an “onsite” feel to these remote panel discussions.
