Air Force Family Advocacy Program
The U.S. Air Force Family Advocacy Program (FAP) and Air Force Medical Operations Agency (AFMOA) are located at Brooks Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. The mission of the FAP is the treatment and prevention of spouse and child abuse in the Air Force. The AFMOA is responsible for providing standards, guidance, and resources to the 81 worldwide field offices that it supports.
To best meet DoD and Air Force specific requirements, the AFMOA required a unified information source on FAP programs for support staff at all levels. Originally a static HTML based site, the AFMOA recognized the need to implement a database-driven system to allow direct input of information from the AFMOA, FAP and its bases via dynamic database applications, and collaborative tools to better meet their information management needs.
DefenseWeb's solution, the FAPNet Web system, is based on a series of interconnected ASP/SQL Server modules developed by DefenseWeb. It also contains several collaboration modules built using DefenseWeb’s Xtendable Server 4.0 along with several custom applications developed to integrate with the AFMOA's Family Advocacy System of Records (see FASOR case study above) intake and case management system.
- AF Employee Background Check System
- Online Survey System
- Multi-Tier Access System
- Recurring Inventory System
- Online Calendar System
- Base Level Roster System
- Email Notification System
- FASOR Integration
- Online Bug/Task Tracking System
- Online Multimedia Tutorial
Numerous features of the FAPNet system were also integrated with the FASOR application, enabling a seamless transfer of data and information between the two systems to support required data automation capabilities. The FASOR application automatically updates data maintained in the FAPNet system and ensures "real-time" access to data by field staff.
The FAPNet site is now an integral resource for Air Force AFMOA and FAP personnel around the globe. At this site, registered staff members view news relating to Air Force families and family programs in the news section, look up programs and personnel in the ServNet directories, find answers to commonly asked questions in the FAQ component, look for other related links in the site links component, view and input upcoming events in the calendar, and perform many program-related tasks.
Performance on this contract demonstrated DefenseWeb's expertise at rapidly fielding a dynamic Web system, and building customized software with limited direction through an iterative release process. The FAPNet system was delivered on schedule and within the initial cost estimates.
