Resources-At-Initiation Process

OVERVIEW: The HESI Resources-at-Initiation (RAI) process is a mechanism established in 2009 to respond to well-defined and time-sensitive projects. The RAI process includes requirements for dedicated funding up front by the project submitters, as well as tripartite engagement and relevance to the mission of HESI. The process is outlined below as a series of questions and answers.
