Flex Working Group
The FastLane technical experts working group was formed in
mid-2000 by Claire Reid (Executive Assistant to the Director of
Research, at the time) on behalf of Grant and Contract Services
and Christine Hammond and Debbie Shafer of CIS to address the complex
issues inherent in the electronic proposal submission process.
MaryAnn Lucas of the Physical Oceanography Department has agreed
to lead the Flex meetings beginning May 2003.
Many thanks to Diane Pencola, G&G, for serving as our first
- To encourage knowledge-sharing about FastLane procedures between
- To provide a conduit for communication between CIS and proposal
preparers specifically dealing with issues relating to FastLane's
electronic submittal process
Flex is comprised of the acknowledged proposal preparation technical
expert or two from each of the science departments.
As resources are identified, we'll keep a list of them below in
an attempt to provide them to the entire proposal-preparation
community at WHOI.
