Interim
In projects, an interim report is often compiled to analyze how the project is proceeding, before its final completion. Interim analysis is important in medical trials, to ensure that the patients are not exposed to unnecessary danger during the trial. Interim constitution is a constitution that has not been completely ratified but serves as a temporary law until a permanent is made. An interim official is a person who is filling an official role temporarily.

For example, a school can have an interim principal, or a country can have an interim prime minister. The interim person may also be called an acting principal or acting prime minister, as they do not have the official position, but serve in the same manner
