  • The Accelerated CDC Extramural Awards Solution (ACES) program requires a Knowledge Management component for the CDC Program and Grants Office (PGO).
  • The ACES team is a cross functional organization with individuals from the PGO, CDC CIOs, and the National Center for Public Health Informatics (NCPHI)

Problem / Situation

  • Solution to provide documentation on how the Program and Grants processes work, the submission of documents into the process and the tracking of the progress of the process.
  • Client needs to determine an architecture and tool selection to enable them to meet functional, risk, and time expectations
  • Client needs technical resources and skills necessary to implement complex technical solution


  • Developed Documentum Web Content Management solution that allowed business user to create and submit content for PGO.

  • Incomplete requirements – Armedia had to quickly complete a Gap analysis of user experience requirements before completing the design, and facilitate approval of the functional requirements without impacting the overall development timeline.
  • Dynamic taxonomy – Armedia designed a fully-dynamic category index page that was reusable, without changing code, by extracting the categories from the published taxonomy and retrieving the relevant content.
