ADMINISTRATIVE RESOURCE

We have designed the NCANDA Administrative Resource to be the hub of core decision making for the NCANDA, to build collaborative effort and communication, to maximize efficiency, and to allow for ongoing creativity and rapid dissemination of findings to the scientific community and public. In particular, the NCANDA Administrative Resource provides the organizational framework for management, direction, and overall coordination of the consortium, including the Scientific Advisory Board, Steering Committee, National Community Advisory Board, Dispute Resolution Process, as well as subcommittees of these organizations. This Resource facilitates communication between Research Project Component sites (UCSD, Duke, SRI, Pittsburgh, OHSU) and Data Analysis, Integration, and Informatics Component. The Administrative Resource coordinates protocol refinement, cross-site standardization, and reliability, including training and implementation of neuropsychological and clinical assessments, and ongoing reliability/integrity evaluation. A primary responsibility of the Resource is to assess and ensure progress towards consortium goals and facilitate decisions regarding future directions in collaboration with the Steering Committee and Scientific Advisory Board. Resource leadership designs and implements policies and procedures for access to collaborative project resources. In these ways, the NCANDA Administrative Resource ensures the quality of the science being conducted and the success of our efforts to understand the impact of alcohol on neurodevelopment of youth.
