Reader comment roundup: Hide your IT project?; Performance pay affects lives

Regarding "IBM: Collaboration will expand CIOs' roles": One area where on-line collaboration pays productivity dividends is in the preparation and submission of federal grant applications. In response to this need, Cayuse launched Subawards.com, a free Web application that allows anyone to complete the SF424 RR Subaward budget form online, and send that data to their collaborators.

Since most large federal grant proposals contain at least one subaward proposal, this Web-based approach paves the way to fast, accurate data sharing. The federal granting agencies could look to this model for a private sector success story.
