Comprehensive Analyses at Every Level

This new proprietary analysis tool helps your organization navigate both current year performance and multi-year trends related to your institution’s density, effective recovery, space breakdown, and more at any unit level relevant to your institution.
For example, an executive at an institution can review the indirect cost recovery (IDC) and IDC density of the institution as a whole, the college of arts and sciences, the chemistry department, and a single investigator.

Metrics to Support Every Decision

Supporting this level of detail enables institutions to monitor performance against density targets, make space allocation adjustments, and identify sources of rapid growth against key metrics such as effective recovery, IDC density, or modified total direct costs (MTDC) dollars.
