Federal Aviation Administration: TORP SE2020 Project and KSN Support
Designed and implemented a complex custom solution for the FAA’s Task Order Requisition Process (TORP); TORP is a government form consisting of 27 sections and its processing involves several participants in government and commercial entities, with dozens of steps performed over a period of several weeks.

This project involved a solution that made extensive use of SharePoint’s custom workflow, InfoPath forms, a custom database schema to support the data, entity model database connections, and dashboards (Dundas Dashboards and Microsoft BI platform); multiple workflows (custom workflow in Visual Studio, AgilePoint BPMS) were developed to facilitate different sub-processes and supporting activities.
FAA regulations regarding the use of custom code in their environment were very strict; we designed our form so it could operate with or without code-behind, where the code was needed to handle the workflow, but the form could be managed manually in a codeless environment.
