The design for custom optical scanner forms for ongoing surveys or for specific research projects must be cleared through the Manager: Network Operations for technical feasibility before the forms are produced. The Manager: Network Operations is responsible for programming the scanner for custom designed optical scanner forms and his decision on the feasibility of the design is final.
The results from custom forms can be provided in many formats, including Excel, SPSS, and Stata.
Custom forms are printed in at least two colours, on a heavier stock of paper (24 lb., 90gsm). As a result, Printing Services requires up to two weeks to print such forms.
