DART Project Updates


Blackbaud returned initial software configurations on Constituent data (biographical information). The configurations are based on specifications outlined by the Constituent Design Team . The project team and select community members are testing the configurations this month. In the meantime, work on other areas of DART continues.

Data Conversion
This team works steadily to create a new home for DAC data in DART. They are testing results of the first conversion and determining procedures to validate biographical data of people and organizations. The team is also moving forward with data mapping, working with the Revenue Management Team’s findings.

Online Community
The team focuses on how the new online portal will handle some revenue business processes. The group recently submitted7 different scenarios to Blackbaud for review. They will continue working closely with Blackbaud.

Annual Giving, Campaign Management and Prospect Research
This is the third group of design teams starting work on DART. They will follow a similar process as other design teams:

  • Prioritize needs

  • Provide specifications to Blackbaud

  • Respond to Blackbaud through programming

  • Test configured software
