    • Proposal Intake Form *Update* 
      Sonia Barragan, Associate Director, RMG
      In September we announced a new approach for the intake of proposal requests as part of RMG’s process improvement efforts.   We piloted the Proposal Intake Form (PIF) with 11 departments from Dec 2017 – March 2018.  The  pilot allowed us to test the new process and make adjustments where needed to make this process seemless.  On May 1, 2018 we implemented the PIF across an additional 36 units.  The transition is underway and we are now looking to implement the PIF across the remaining units for a full PIF roll-out across the School of Medicine.  We will review efforts to date, provide a brief demo of the PIF, and answer all your questions.
