Project Summary (2017-2022)

The Administrative Core is the central hub for all activities of the Texas A&M University Superfund Research Program (TAMU SRP) Center. It is organized around four key functions that enable it to be an effective and nimble coordinator of research, outreach, training, and translation activities:

  • Administration and fiscal management
  • Integration of cross-disciplinary research
  • Facilitating and maintaining connections with stakeholders
  • Quality management (Quality Management Function)

The Core coordinates TAMU SRP Center leadership and activities with two committees. The leaders of the projects and cores in the Center form a Scientific Steering Committee, which meets monthly and is responsible for planning Center activities; evaluating progress and considering solutions for challenges; improving Center integration; overseeing personnel matters; assessing quality management/assurance; organizing the annual retreat; considering publication and data release questions; and evaluating community engagement, training, and research translation activities.

Oversight of the Center is the responsibility of an External Advisory Committee, which meets annually to perform program evaluation of the Center and determine whether research, outreach, training, and translation goals and objectives are being met. A diverse group of experts in their respective disciplines representing academia, federal and state governmental agencies, industry, and non-governmental organizations comprise the External Advisory Committee. Appropriate procedures to ensure excellence of research, support, outreach, community engagement, translation, and training activities, and the synthesis of findings and outputs from research projects and cores towards addressing the central theme of the Center have been devised to create a clear chain of communication and responsibility in the Core and across the entire Center.
