Can Your Workforce Support the Caseload? Use this Calculator to Find Out

September 18, 2019
The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence last week released its Workforce Calculator. The calculator allows laboratories to identify how many personnel are needed to support a given level of casework.

The calculator is part of the Workforce Calculator Project, which follows a two-year timeline to produce a workforce calculator that will be hosted on the FTCoE website. The calculator released last week is a beta version, and laboratories who test the calculator are encouraged to report their findings.

You can download the calculator, and find more information, here.
