On October 29th two of our Purchasing Services team members stepped away from the office and into Varsity Hall of Union South. Doreen Forslund, Procurement Specialist, and Janet Bresnahan, Procurement Specialist-Sr, took part in the inaugural UW-Madison Research Regulatory Fair by hosting an information table.
This fair took place to assist a wide range of individuals. Professors to grad students, post doctorates and research administrators attended the Research Regulatory Fair to find out more on compliance matters regarding their studies. A variety of departments from around campus with information on research regulations hosted tables to help aspiring researchers address their needs in today’s ever–changing regulatory environment.
This event also provided the opportunity for the research-related departments to engage with peers on campus who had complimentary expertise. Doreen said, “We would have never known otherwise about some of these resources.”
The Division of Business Services is proud of Janet and Doreen for taking their roles outside of the office and helping to create an impact throughout the community. Purchasing Services looks forward to upcoming Research Regulatory Fairs and other opportunities to get involved in the community.
