Do I need to create a seperate web application for InfoPath?

We currently have eforms that have been stored on a seperate web application.  The site collection was eforms and the subsites were listed for each department.  Each department then contained their specific eforms.  My question is do I need to create an entirely seperate web application for eforms or can I just create an infopath site which would house the forms for each department.  

I am trying to figure out what would be the best way for users to be able to access different forms for each department from one central location.

You don't need a separate web application.  You don't even need to make a separate subsite.  You just add a form library to an existing site.  OR you could create a new subsite called "Forms".  Then create a forms library on that site for each form.  Then modify your navigation so that you have a heading of "HR Department" and links to the HR department forms under that.

Thank you.  That is just what I figured too.  For some reason the previous person had a completely different web app and seperate sites for forms and apps??? eventhough they were the same thing? I don't want it set up that way in 2010.
Thank you so much for your answer.
