I coordinated the MRC e-Val exercise just before Christmas 2009. MRC collected feedback on the process from the award holders and have published a report on their website.
Over the next few years award holders from the many HEI’s may have to continue to enter data direct to the MRC system. So it is very re-assuring to see that the concensus is that the MRC system is easy to use.
This until such time as the proposed RCUK system fulfils the MRC requirements. MRC are working closely with RCUK on the requirements. Once the new system is in place we hope to deliver data directly to RCUK rather than have information input to thier system by award holders as it will then not be in our local systems and synchronisation issues may exist.
