  22. 22. Principles of CETIS programme support<br />Support for UKOER uses models of support we provide to other JISC development programmes. <br />Treat the programme as a whole <br />Engage with individual projects but use specific issues to also produce general advice<br />Create a high level overview of the technical approaches, technologies and standards in use within and across funded programmes. <br />Synthesise, reflect, and make recommendations.<br />
