RCUK Outcomes System Testing

Hi All,

Just started doing some testing of the RCUK outcomes system.  Some initial thoughts that will be included in my feedback to RCUK and I expect they will publish a summary of feedback and future plans:

  • Bulk upload is only currently available per award and only for outcome types publication and conference so this is very limited use
  • Online definitions require a bit of rooting about to determine where certain information should go and there is potential overlap
  • Concern over staff development data – people might inadvertently fill in something that is inaccurate or inappropriate – I am seeking advice from our HR department

I will look forward to moving towards an efficient solution to this requirement.  At present I am not sure how we will minimise burden on staff and ensure useful information is provided to Research Council’s but thought process and discussion is on-going.
