The goal of this project is to design and implement a business process management system for Valparaiso University’s Institutional Review Board. Rather than extending the Google Forms-based system that the IRB is currently using, it was determined that a from-scratch application tailored to their needs would be a preferable alternative for the customer. This is a web-based application created using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, and PHP. We are utilizing Google’s login API to allow reviewers easy and convenient access to the information without having to create additional accounts to keep track of. The application will allow administrators (members of the review board) to create and edit various forms for applicants to fill out, as well as view all of an applicant’s stored information in a convenient view page. The customer specifically requested that the site notify them via email when a valid application was submitted, and allow them to keep their internal discussions correlated with specific applicants for organization’s sake.
