TM: Institutional bureaucracy in matters surrounding qualitative data in consideration of whom this data is meant for. Considering the KEBS rep, where the discussion only centred around qualitative data for the big institutions which they train on data handling.

Someone gave the example of historians who may no longer even need to come to Nairobi to conduct research “in the archives.”
