Focus Group for Research Program Managers and ORS Administrators

Focus Groups were held for Research Program Managers and ORS administrators to provide them with an overview of RAIMS and to establish a mechanism for on-going engagement.  The opportunity was used to acquire an appreciation of current systems and processes from the perspective of administrators and to identify their desired changes in the new system.   Their feedback has been used for the purpose of implementation planning.
