A record number of submissions made. A record number of submissions posted. And an exciting Expo where CUSP Finalists described their best practices to a host of interested colleagues.
This year’s CU Shared Practices Program culminated in the announcement of five award winners. Top honors – the University Controller’s Award for Excellence – went to E-Storage for Research Administration, submitted by Office of Contracts & Grants-Boulder Campus (Steve Sheldon, Garrett Steed, Melissa Englund, Roger McCormick, James Uhes, Stefanie Furman, Beth Kingsley, Sharon DeCarlo, Justin Mack, Andy Wang, and Bev Baran).
Additional award winners were:
- Annual Financial Reporting Online, submitted by Office of University Controller-CU System (Travis Chillemi)
- APInvoice@cu.edu, submitted by Procurement Service Center-CU System (Charlene Lydick, Amy Gannon, Kaye Stewart-Hicks, Elizabeth Bentley, Carolyn DeTemple, and Pamela Andrade)
- Expense Clearing Training Videos, submitted by Accounting & Business Support-Boulder Campus (Jenny Shao, Rebekah Martino, and Chris Zetterholm)
- UCD Events Management System, submitted by Office of Associate Vice Chancellor for Administration-Anschutz Medical Campus (Layna Breyare)
Most of the accepted submissions were represented at the Expo, and staff from all campuses took advantage of this unique opportunity to learn about them. During the formal program, Senior Vice President & Chief of Staff Leonard Dinegar spoke about the importance of sharing successes in redesigned business processes. CUSP Program Coordinator Frances Chapman applauded the finalists for their hard work, noting that all were truly winners since their submissions had been well vetted prior to being posted to the CUSP website. Assistant Vice President & University Controller Robert Kuehler underscored his commitment to support and expand the program and highlighted the ingenuity and talents of employees throughout the University.
Congratulations to the award winners … and to all the CUSP Finalists for 2014! We’ll be highlighting many of them in future news articles.
