The specific applications contained in ProjNetSM are described in the user documentation, identified below.

ProjNetSM is a not-for-profit software development by the U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC). The National Institute of Building Sciences administers ProjNet provides business-process based information exchange subscriptions and provides user support services. Agencies participating in ProjNetSM are automatically given seats on the NIBS Government-to-Business process committee where best practices are shared and new requirements identified and vetted.
