3:05 Overview of Structure of Strategic Plan Update (Strategic Plan Structure document)
3:10 Summary of 2013 Portfolio Analysis – Group Discussion (Pages 1-4, Data Analysis Slides)
  1. Comments/observations on the overall portfolio?
3:25 Analysis of Question 5 Objectives (Multiyear Funding Table and 2013 Project List)
  1. Has there been an adequate number of projects for each objective?
  2. For each objective, do the funded projects cover the scope of the objective? Any noted areas of progress or gaps?
  3. Was the recommended budget for each objective reached? If less was spent, but the number/scope of projects was appropriate, should the objective be considered completed but accomplished with less than the expected budget? In cases where more was spent than the recommended budget, was it because many more projects were funded in that area or because projects were more costly than originally projected? Are there any concerns with regard to funding associated with objectives?
  4. Does the working group observe any areas of this question or specific projects that appear to be duplicative? Does the working group have suggestions about how duplication of effort can be avoided in this area?
  5. Are there areas of emerging research that do not appear to be represented strongly in the portfolio that should be considered for mention in the new Strategic Plan?
