The NC State IT Community Awards, established in 2019, aim to recognize teams and individuals who have made a significant collaborative impact within the IT community.

The Extraordinary Team Impact Award recognizes a high-functioning team that has facilitated, promoted or advanced the university’s goals, mission, vision and values through its collaborative project-focused efforts. The selection criteria place focus upon a successful team effort on a project that supports one or more institutional goals and provides a valuable enhancement for the university or a sub-segment of the university.

The mission of the ERA project, a phased implementation of the Research Enterprise Data (RED) system, is to implement a system that integrates the lifecycle of research administration processes — from proposal development and submission through award management, financial administration and closeout — at NC State, in order to create efficiencies and increase the efficacy of compliance.

The RED system is an enterprise-level software suite that will streamline research activities across the university — allowing NC State research administration to keep pace with its ever-growing research portfolio. Two modules of the RED system are currently live: Animal Care and Use (IACUC) and Conflict of Interest (COI/NOI). The next RED modules set to launch are Proposal Tracking (PT) and Post-Award Management (PAM), which will replace the legacy system RADAR.
