Penn is one of the nation’s top research universities, managing nearly a billion dollars in research every year.
ISC is supporting Penn Research’s Burden Reduction Initiative (BRI) aimed at reducing the amount of time required for faculty to accomplish administrative requirements associated with their research. BRI consists of three primary systems:
- Research Portal, which will serve Penn’s 12 Schools, providing improved systems access and the consolidation and presentation of information
- Grant Financial Management reporting system, which will standardize the use and manipulation of financial information
- Conflict of Interest and Extramural Disclosure System, which will serve both faculty and researchers
