obstacles
Obstacles
  • Work from Information Technology (IT) delayed until July, 1 2013.
    • MOA between Preparedness and IT Department
    • Percent of time of IT assistance was an issue for other programs needing work completed
    • Head of IT retired
    • Preparedness Branch had to determine a current source of funding for work
    • Competing work and emergency response (oil spill, potential infectious disease outbreak, tornado recovery)
  • Local travel has been limited due to budgetary cuts so we may incorporate MRC website training within the scope of an existing MRC meeting.
