The description defines unique terms, summarizes current and proposed systems, provides specific requirements for the proposed system, identifies environmental considerations, cost factors and a system development plan. The proposed system will simplify and accelerate data processing significantly reduce the reliance on paper products and the labor-intensity of the current system and consolidate information which will enhance management capability and ultimately reduce scholarship costs, while being more responsive to the needs of applicants.
