China-VO developed an information management system for the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST), which is the world’s largest single radio dish telescope located in Guizhou, China. The system provides a portal for the public, telescope users and telescope managers. Some of the key functions include user management, release of news, announcements and scientific achievements, management of observation projects and parameter submission, management and search of observation logs, application of user account and data usage authorisation for FAST data center, etc. The system is designed to be in accordance with several IVOA standards , which lays the foundation for future data releases of FAST using VO standards.
