Performance Indicators and Outcomes

The chart below represents the target outcomes that RMC expect to achieve solely due to the receipt of the Research Support Funds. Without the availability of the financial resources given to us by the RSF, we would be unable to improve and deliver critical services at the College, as seen by the table below.

Eligible Expenditure Area Output (investment of RSF funds) Performance Objective Performance Indicator Target Outcome Outcomes Reported at Year-End
