      Pros

      Dynamic environment with remote sites throughout the US. Sites are short of critical equipment and therefore require equipment immediately.

      Cons

      Lack of resources - equipment, infrastructure and Funding shortfalls. Supply Chain and long lead times hamper ability to purchase equipment in a timely manner.
