Investigation Plans

The Online Data Portal (ODP) Investigation Plan features help manage applications for annual research funding from the TRRP. Each investigation plan represents a separate research initiative that is proposed by a group of investigators. Plans contain detailed information about the activities, deliverables and budget of the intended research. Each plan is associated with a particular fiscal year. Plans are submitted and then managed through an approval process by the TRRP.

The materials on this and related pages describes the key features for creating and submitting an investigation plan to the TRRP.
