Rgu: Information management Evaluation – current issues Lack of clarity on how the targets collected contribute to funding allocations. Significant manual effort in preparing for and carrying out data collection. Lack of visibility on the targets collected due the use of spreadsheets. Significant manual effort on reporting on targets against actual enrolments due to lack of system integration.
