The goals for the PERISTM portal are to:
  • reduce administrative burden for faculty
  • increase efficiency
  • enhance transparency to researchers and administrators
  • integrate the University’s research operations
  • create a user-friendly system
  • promote sustainability through electronic processes
The PERISTM portal also addresses two of the goals for the 2016 Plan for Pitt.
  • Facilitating research of impact
  • Building foundational strength

With the help of Click® Portal, a division of Huron Consulting Group, this project will be executed in three phases.
