National Institute on Aging



RLA has supported various review efforts in the Division of Behavioral and Social Research (BSR) in the National Institute on Aging (NIA) in the past several years. Most recently, RLA provided project management, committee management, portfolio analysis, meeting planning, and science writing support to the BSR Data Infrastructure Review Committee in its efforts to provide scientific guidance on the division’s portfolio of data infrastructure projects.

How We Helped

RLA worked closely with BSR staff to develop metrics for and to conduct portfolio analysis activities, prepare background materials for the Committee’s review, organize Committee teleconferences and an in-person meeting, and draft the Committee report. RLA collaborated with the Committee chair to facilitate the entire process and produced a final consensus Committee report.
