The recommendations made by the TEAM working groups led to the implementation of several projects designed to improve administrative efficiencies in key areas. We now have structures in place to support efficient, effective administrative management across the university.
Simplify common administrative tasks so they require less time, are easier to track, and better serve the Tufts community.
Facilitate a uniform and strategic budgeting process across Tufts.
Address increased pressure on the university to generate revenue with communications and marketing efforts that inspire action.
Introduce rigorous procurement standards, maximize Tufts’ purchasing power and secure the best pricing. Spend less yet remain responsive to the need for equipment and services.
Provide a simple, service-oriented approach to conducting many administrative human resource and finance tasks.
Align IT services with the needs of the Tufts community. Support academic and administrative needs by improving processes and introducing technologies that enable ubiquitous access, anytime support, responsive service and productive partnerships.
