Research Enterprise Services (RES) provides administrative services to specific research units on the Berkeley campus, under the leadership of the Vice Chancellor for Research. In November 2009 a review committee comprised of faculty and administrators was convened by the Vice Chancellor for Research to help review and enhance the services offered by campus units that support the campus research infrastructure, including RES. The charge to the committee is available here. The report of the review committee on RES, issued in November 2010, is available here. The Vice Chancellor for Research provided a detailed summary of RES' plans for responding to the committee's recommendations in January 2011. His summary is available here.
