The focus of the annual process is on administrative success and continuous quality improvement.


What is required?

The process begins with establishing and updating goals and plans of action, along with implications for fiscal resource requests and adjustments.  Both the Comprehensive Administrative and Service Area Review and the Annual Planning and Development processes also include a reflection on three (3) years of financial data from Financial Services.  Areas are encouraged to include other relevant data as part of this reflection. In both processes, participants write narrative components that include progress on action plans, significant assessment findings, external constituency and significant trends, and self-assessment of department vitality.

The College maintains a software program to help facilitate the management of data distribution, document organization, and reflection elements.  Training sessions on the process and software are available to all staff during August Professional Development Days or through request to the Assessment, Evaluation and Institutional Outcomes Office.

If an area or department chooses to collect data on Activity-Based Costing through time and effort tracking, the software TeamDynamix can be used.  Setup will need to start with a request to Information Services (IS) and training sessions can be scheduled as an ad hoc process.  Administrators are encouraged to use these available tools to document time and effort to help quantify the cost of doing business.
