The Research Computing and Data (RCD) Capabilities Model allows institutions to assess their support for computationally- and data-intensive research, to identify potential areas for improvement, and to understand how our academic communities view RCD support. However, smaller, under-resourced institutions and emerging RCD programs often find the existing RCD Capabilities Model assessment tool a bit overwhelming, and/or they lack the resources to complete that level of assessment. In response to community feedback, the RCD Capabilities Model working group at CaRCC has started a Focused Tools Committee to better meet the needs of these smaller institutions and emerging RCD programs. The RCD Capabilities Model Focused Tools will help emerging programs get off the ground by identifying necessary elements to building a research program from scratch. All institutions (regardless of the version they use) will be welcome in the growing RCD Community of Practice, to share and learn from one another.
