FRN data is stored on the CoLab Research Platform. The Research Platform is a secure, web-based platform where real-time data is accessed by assigned Research Associates.
FRN agencies enter data in the Data Collection Tool and are able to view their data in the Research Platform by 'raw' csv data and reports. Research Associate Account holders are able to access FRN Reports which are filterable, customized and downloadable PDF documents.
A number of resources to support completion of the Annual Activity Report are available in the Annual Activity Report Toolkit. We strongly encourage everyone to review the Annual Activity Report Guide for detailed instructions on using the Research Platform to complete this report.
