The BlackCat Grant Management System® greatly reduces the need for data entry, particularly for DOT personnel, as the recipients andsub-recipients are required to enter and submit application and funding data as well as required documentation online. The same data willthen be available for additional activities such as application reviews and approvals, funding decisions, grant agreement creation andexecution, etc. The system can further streamline both the application and grant agreement processes when optional electronic signaturefeatures are implemented.

The BlackCat Rail Data Management System® manages at grade rail roadway crossing data. This complete data system collects the data required for state DOT's to meet Federal Rail Administration (FRA) reporting requirements.

The BlackCat Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) System assists airports in tracking and reporting Passenger Facility Charges submitted by the airlines as well as SOAR reporting of PFC applications, collections, and project expenditures.

"TNDOT Aeronautics is using the BlackCat system. Originally bought to be our grants management financial tool and accounting assistant, but discovered it has very robust ability to be total project management, to include hosting our ACIP, project requests, document history for project requests and project status – really anything you want to put in to a project’s history – contract writing and tracking to include signatures and other contract actions, etc. We are pleased with the system. We already are using it successfully. I would encourage you to talk with Panther. The company has been good to work with."

2015 Prudential Productivity Award: TransCIP Toll Revenue Credits Module

Panther International's TransCIP, an implementation of the BlackCat Grant Management System for Transit in the State of Florida, has been selected as a recipient of the2015 Prudential Productivity Award. The award given annually by Florida Tax Watch and Prudential serves to recognize systems and activities that improve the productivity and accountability of Florida Government.

The Florida DOT makes available the use of toll revenue credits as soft match on all federally funded public transit capital projects. In the last fiscal year, $87 million of toll revenue credits were issued to local transit agencies, allowing Florida's transit systems to leverage an additional $350 million in federal capital funds. The Toll Revenue Credits module in TransCIP allows agencies to submit their toll revenue credit requests to the Districts, track the approval process, and access their approval letter from the Central Office through the system. "This feature streamlines an important process and resource for local transit agencies while leveraging additional federal dollars. It was a great team win." says Larry Merritt, FDOT Multi-modal Programs Manager.
