The four major goals of the Administrative Core of the Colorado NORC are:
- To maintain a strong, cohesive sense of community among the research base.
- To oversee and manage the day-to-day operations of the NORC cores and programs.
- To sustain strong, productive relationships with campus partners and institutional leaders.
- To sustain strong, productive relationships with the national NORC community.
Specifically, this core manages the day-to-day operation of the NORC including managing budgets and maintaining communications with members of the research base, scientific cores, and research teams. This core oversees the use of scientific core facilities, the pilot and feasibility program, and the enrichment program. This core manages activities of the Executive Committee and the External Advisory Committee. The Administrative Core keeps track of NORC productivity including funding and publication success of the NORC and works to ensure that all NORC publications cite the NORC grant. The Administrative Core is responsible for preparing all reports for NIH.
