Acumen, LLC


Information Management Web App


Product Design Lead

Project Summary

Acumen provides impartial data-driven analysis to government agencies to help inform health care and social policy. Acumen has used an archaic, largely ineffective application to manage and track the work required to fulfill awarded government contracts.

I led the product design efforts to develop a web application to replace the current information management system. Specific tasks administered by the application include viewing employee information and recording time, managing contract budget and tasks, and invoicing.
