Rationale Sample Clauses

Rationale. The District has a broad recruitment program to locate highly qualified certificated employees. Due to the shortage of certificated teachers in some areas, it is necessary to employ non- certificated personnel. The Internship Program offers a way for the District and the Commission‐approved credential programs to collaboratively identify, prepare, and support candidates for the Intern positions in these areas of shortage. The teachers’ bargaining associate recognizes the need for an Internship Program and agrees to the District offering Intern positions to suitable candidates in areas of need.
Rationale. To support a safe discharge from hospital, reduce a patient’s unnecessary length of time in hospital and prevent avoidable readmission. Reference document: NSW ComPacks Program Guidelines and Resources - March 2015 Notes on Calculation of Target: Targets are based on each District’s/Network’s ComPacks budget. Additional Notes: ComPacks are non-clinical case-managed community care packages available for people being transferred home from a participating New South Wales Public Hospital. Each package is available for up to 6 weeks from the package start date. Service Code Service Name Measurement Unit Service Volume Explanatory Notes Other Services PI-03 Hospital in the Home (HITH) – Acute Separations Number 1,483 Definition of Activity Measure: The number of overnight Bed Type 25 acute separations, as a measure of the number of patients receiving acute care through Hospital in the Home, as a substitution of hospitalisation. Rationale: To increase the number of people in NSW who receive acute clinical care (hospital substitution) in their home and ambulatory settings to reduce hospitalisations. To reduce demand on inpatient hospital services, as per GL2013_006 NSW Hospital in the Home (HITH) Guideline. Notes on Calculation of Target Target based on actual HITH activity for 2014/15 – Bed Type 25 acute overnight separations 1. Districts/Networkss performing above State average rate: target = [June 2015 Health Service HITH substitution rate] x [total Health Service acute overnight separations] + [0.5 per cent x total Health Service acute overnight separations] 2. Districts/Networkss performing below State average rate: target = [June 2015 State average HITH substitution rate] x [total Health Service acute overnight separations] HITH substitution rate: Numerator = Number Bed Type 25 acute overnight separations Denominator = Total Districts/Networks acute overnight separations Additional notes: The NWAU value for Hospital in the Home is included in Acute Admitted RTX Radiotherapy Courses (new and re-treat) 720 Definition of Activity Measure: Number of new and re-treatment patients treated with radiotherapy. Rationale for Target: Planning target of 414 courses per Linear Accelerater (linac) based on agreed national planning parameters. Minimum 360 courses per linac. The minimum target has been considered in relation to the average number of courses per linac for public sector services in 2014. Further, services at individual sites are to be at a level not less than...
Rationale. There is an increasing occurrence of legal claims and actions against organizations and their employees, with significant costs of defending against such claims and actions. This has given rise to Lakehead University (the "University") establishing a policy (the "Policy") to assist its employees in understanding the extent of the University's indemnification for legal costs incurred by its employees as a result of claims and actions brought against the University and/or its employees, and arising out of employees' employment duties.
Rationale. The rationale for the Transfer is that one of the Company’s intangible assets is its listing status and that the Transfer, if successful, seeks to provide some or additional recovery to Shareholders and/or Creditors. If the Company’s assets were liquidated, there will be no residual value available for distribution to the Shareholders after payment to the Creditors. As such, the Scheme offers potentially better returns for Creditors and Shareholders, as compared to a liquidation scenario.
Rationale. 1. If, upon recommendation by the administration, in the judgment of the Board, it becomes necessary to reduce teachers due to declining student enrollment, declining District revenue, elimination or reduction of programs, or for other just reasons, the Board of Education may exercise its duty and power to reduce the number of staff positions. When the Superintendent determines that reduction of teachers may become necessary, written notification of his/her recommendation shall be given to the NACT President.
Rationale. 2.1 The Bank should be a safe, comfortable and conducive work environment for all employees. All employees should be treated with dignity and respect and everyone has a responsibility to uphold these values to create a supportive work environment.
Rationale. This strategy searches for inhibitors of Ig secretion and is the most direct measure of the goal as defined in this proposal. This approach will directly target the splicing step and translation of the IgH chain that is responsible for generating the secretory form of Ig. Increased promoter activity after BCR ligation and/or increased stability of Ig(mu) mRNA in B cells are thought to be critical for the enhanced level of RNA message. The understanding of the contributions of these two phenomena during B cell development and immune responses has been elusive. However, this approach should allow for the discovery of drug targets in either case. CELL LINES AND CONSTRUCT: Ig+ mature B cell lines will be tested for their ability to produce secretory Ig. The most inducible cell line will be infected with a retroviral construct containing a TK/GFP fusion gene inserted after (mu)4, the secretory segment (S) and the puromycin resistance gene following the cytoplasmic exon (Appendix I). Cells will be selected in puromycin to obtain a population that contains stably integrated transgenes. Upon anti-Ig stimulation, GFP and TK activity will reflect the expression of the secretory forms of Ig. Before screening, the physiological nature of the BCR-induced splicing event in both the endogenous and the transgene will be confirmed using PCR analysis. The tTA expressing cell line will be generated as described in Screen 1. PEPTIDE LIBRARY SCREENING AND PROTEIN TARGET IDENTIFICATION: The screening protocol will be identical to that described in Screen 2 (Appendix G).
Rationale. Altered regulation of proteins that control cell cycle checkpoints may result in chromosomal instability which underlies the transformed state of many tumor cells. Using Rigel's high throughput genetic screens, it is expected that novel tumor-specific targets will be identified, which when bound to a peptide, will result in the cell being blocked from exiting a specific phase of the cell cycle. Rigel has demonstrated that it can identify and express cell cycle regulating proteins, and specific peptides derived from them, which arrest cells in a specific phase of the cell cycle (Appendix F). Consequently, it is expected that the use of combinatorial constrained peptide libraries delivered using a retroviral-based system will identify peptide families which interact with novel cell-cycle checkpoint regulating targets.
