Planning

Focus: The purpose of the Planning Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is to determine the research needs in the areas of planning focusing mainly on designing and developing a mechanism to better integrate and coordinate the delivery of programs and services.  In addition, it is important to mitigate risks relating to external factors that can adversely impact completion of the program.  Context sensitive solutions plays an integral role in the planning, and should be included whenever possible in analyzing research needs.   Analysis will include integrating socioeconomic and environmental considerations into system level planning and program development.
