Workflow information Tracking System (WiTS)


The Workflow information Tracking System (WiTS) provides the NIH community with a standardized way to submit, track, and report on HR and HR-related activities. WiTS drives corporate consistency by enforcing streamlined, optimized business processes via automated workflows and real-time reporting. The system aids communication by providing online action initiation, automated status/reminder emails and direct access to HR reports.  WiTS at NIH increases overall organizational transparency and accountability via accurate and timely reporting, and provides management officials with a tool to identify, monitor and manage staff workload and performance.
