RAS Challenges


Tufts does not have a research administration system, it has a completely manual process. The RAS project will address the following obstacles:

  • There is an ever increasing regulatory burden on researchers and staff.
  • Newly recruited faculty arrive with the expectation that we have a robust system in place and get frustrated when they see that we don’t have one at all.
  • Researchers may need to submit more proposals to a variety of funding sources due to decreases in available funding.
  • Trends in research funding are moving towards collaborative projects with multiple investigators; data need to come together from several sources and approvals need multiple routes.
