NIMSS Training & Handbook

The National Information Management and Support System (NIMSS) is a web-based application that allows participants of Multistate Research Projects to submit proposals and reports online and register to participate on projects. Interested parties, stakeholders, and cooperators can also query the NIMSS for relevant and timely information on multistate projects.

In 2015, a new and improved version of this online database and project management system was launched. As part of the launch of the new NIMSS, a new basics training video is now available. This 35 minute video covers most of the functions required for Administrative Advisors and those functioning as or on behalf of an AES station director. A handbook on the New NIMSS is also out now, and will be updated periodically as the New NIMSS is refined. As always, please feel free to contact me or your respective NIMSS regional system administrator (RSA) with any questions about the new NIMSS or the multistate program.
