So much time is spent report accomplishments, figuring out how to count accomplishments in the vairous programs...each with their own methods and accounting rules... make ONE reporting system for how the budget is spent and what was accomplished with the budget. For example for a simple project I have to report it at minimum 3 different ways (3 different reports because the systems don't communicate), plus enter it into the budget system, and if there are partners, then there are even more reports! AND there would be fewer software programs to maintain, since each reporting system uses a different software.
