Achievion Solutions designed architecture of the ASSIST application which is responsible for intake of complex applications. The architecture was developed using SOA best practices to communicate with other internal eRA systems via Web Services protocol. Achievion team also led development and testing of one of the internal modules that downloads complex applications from Grants.gov system and decomposes it for downstream processing.
