Current & Past Initiatives
Providing Enhanced Management Tools
The primary objective of initiatives in this category is to provide enhanced management tools to enable University departments and offices to work more efficiently and effectively in delivering programs and services that support the University’s mission and goals. Examples include:
- In early 2010 an electronic salary administration module (SAM) was made available to department managers who had formerly been forecasting salary increases manually for the Office of Human Resources. The new system creates a streamlined, efficient, and more accurate process.
- The Office of Finance and Treasury launched a multi-year effort to clarify and streamline the travel process so that it is easier for the traveler and less costly for the University. This project has four components: 1) travel policies and expense guidelines; 2) travel booking; 3) credit cards for travel and entertainment purposes; and 4) travel expense reporting and reimbursement.
