The Division of Research and Economic Development (DRED) is focused on improving the university’s research and creative activity infrastructure across campus. Currently, DRED is leading or supporting various research administration systems initiatives, including the InfoEd implementation and Next Frontier program. Implementing enhanced and new modules and user-friendly dashboard elements requires broader and more complex systems and analytics support, along with collaboration with university information technology offices (e.g., Office of Information Technology/Business Intelligence Reporting Services, Research Computing, Institute for Pervasive Cybersecurity and Office of Continuous Improvement). Consequently, certain organizational and resource changes are necessary.
Effective immediately, Research Administration Systems and Analytics (RASA), formerly Systems in the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), has a new home in DRED and within Research Enterprise Services. This move will allow RASA to continue supporting OSP as it has while also providing research support services to the rest of the division and beyond.
“I’m excited to see where this transition will take us and for the opportunity to further support the continued growth of research and creative activities on our campus,” Senior Manager of Research Administration Systems and Analytics, Krissy Hamilton said. “Our mission is to support innovation and education through research and creative activities at Boise State by providing solution-oriented system support and data analytics to faculty, students and staff.”
In the near future, RASA will be making other changes, including a new email address, website and service intake form. Regular updates will be provided to the campus community.
“We are so lucky that Krissy recently rejoined our team,” Assistant Vice President, Research Enterprise Services, Matt Smith said. “Krissy is a knowledgeable and innovative technology leader and project manager dedicated to excellent customer service for our faculty, students and staff. She is the right person at the right time to build scalable and flexible information systems to power Boise State’s research and creative activity growth.”
