Assessing Project Feasibility

From fall 2002 through spring 2003, FRIS studied the feasibility of creating a regional mobile SANE system for its state. It hired a consultant to assist with this phase of the project. FRIS initially thought that a SANE should be hired, but found that an individual with research experience was better suited for the role.

The two main tasks of the study were to define the elements of the project and identify potential service areas. For FRIS, a potential service area consisted of two or more adjacent counties. FRIS also wanted to learn about state-specific issues that could affect the project’s success.
