Research Projects on the ARCCA Facilities
During the first two years of the ARCCA service, usage statistics were based on a per user basis. Recognising the limitations of such information, in terms of matching utilisation against the requirements of funding agencies, ARCCA staff implemented a phased deployment of project based accountancy, starting in October 2010.
The initial phase delivered a pilot system to uncover any potential bugs in the scripts and accountancy database (custom built around the PBS Pro database). Once evaluated and refined in a production environment, the full project ID deployment was made live in November 2010.
There are now over 100 projects registered on the system, projects that are summarised by title and a brief project description can be found in the link below.
