ICF International reviewed 74 COTS Web-based survey software products for potential use by ARI researchers in survey development and administration. Products were reviewed based on their ability to meet the following key criteria 1 survey development and hosting could be on ARI servers 2 company size and reputation suggest the company would be able to provide quality service for many years 3 the survey product meets Army and DoD security regulations and technical requirements, and 4 the survey features meet the feature needs of ARI researchers. Based on our review and analyses, we conclude that Confirmit EFM Professional and Vovici EFM Community best meet ARIs research needs and technical requirements. Confirmit EFM Professional, although expensive compared to the other products reviewed, has a high percentage of desired survey features available 81.58 and is compatible with the IT and security requirements of ARI. Vovici EFM Community has a slightly lower percentage of survey features available 72.37 than Confirmit EFM Professional, but is a more cost-effective solution and has a Certificate of Net worthiness for an earlier version of the current product.
