George Mason University is implementing an integrated research web-based system, RAMP, to support Mason’s growing research enterprise. This system will reduce duplication of efforts and better support faculty. It allows capture of research related data in one system improving reporting and data driven decision making. RAMP will help improve compliance with sponsor regulations and requirements through streamlined workflow and an automated reminder system.
