Research & Academic Engagement (RAE) Benchmarking and Portfolio Planning
Sponsored by UC Berkeley Research Information Technologies and Academic Engagement/ETS, the RAE Portfolio Planning project reviewed our entire portfolio of existing and planned technology services and benchmarked them against several peer institutions. An initial benchmarking was done in the Spring of 2014 and a second benchmarking activity in 2016. The results have been used to work with key stakeholders to determine service investments and enhancements as well as develop service roadmaps. The full process is outlined in the documents below.
Ensure Berkeley maintains the highest quality services to support research, teaching and learning by
- Comparing Berkeley technology services with peer institutions
- Developing a set of recommendations around future resource realignment and investments
- Fostering collaboration and a shared understanding across domains and service areas.
