What the Data Shows
SUNY Pre-Award and Compliance System (PACS)
SUNY PACs is a multi-year collaborative project that will result in the implementation of the online "Click Portal" solution. This solution will support principal investigators, students and compliance and research administration staff by automating the submission, review, approval, and ongoing management of all major aspects of the research administration and compliance lifecycle. It will allow participating SUNY campuses to achieve a new level of uniformity and efficiency, while producing valuable data analytics to guide future business decisions.
