RSF Total Grant Amounts and Allocation Per Category
IPG amounts for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 were $205,417and $297,576, respectively. With these funds investments were made in information resources to expand research data storage and security, as well as improve and meet software requirements. For example, commonly used software licenses were purchased for Qualtrics; NVivo and NVivo for Teams; SPSS; MATLAB; STATA SE and made available to all campus researchers. Also, a new secure server was built and Citrix ShareFile software installed. This combination of hardware and software, ensures from a security stand point, complete control over the security of the data since it is stored on campus. The Citrix ShareFile further responds to researchers’ information security requirements by enabling a secure connection for their research partners and collaborators around the world to access that data, if so required. Finally, a purpose-built research software development pilot was launched to met the needs of unique research programs.
