Administrative Process Improvement Committee

 

 

Purpose

The primary purpose of the Administrative Process Improvement Committee (APIC) is to provide a forum for employees to identify potential opportunities for improvement in our operational and administrative processes and procedures.

Aiming for a balanced ethical, inclusive, and simple operational process should be a frequent task when either designing or reviewing administrative processes campus-wide. Excellence in operational processes can be best achieved when systemic issues are identified, remedied, and eliminated. Some common systemic issues may include excessive checkpoints, bottlenecks in process, and the continued use of traditional practices without a present purpose or without consideration for new technologies.

Questions to Consider

  • Is the process too cumbersome?
  • Are there opportunities for streamlining?
  • Is communication of expectations clear?
  • Is education, support, and training provided?
  • Do the current processes and procedures still meet our needs?

Potential Areas to Identify Opportunities for Operational Improvements

  • Standardization of process, including procedures and policies
  • Safety
  • Campus mobility
  • Campus events
  • Facilities/Infrastructure
  • Communication
  • Travel
  • Training and support

APIC Deliverables

The Committee shall seek input from faculty and staff to help diagnose potential opportunties for improvement and to suggest possible solutions in partnership with associated units.
