Business Managers Process Improvement Workgroup

The Business Managers Process Improvement Workgroup will continue communications on the listserve and discontinue quarterly meetings.

This listserv is an opportunity for all business office staff and Directors to discuss the successes and challenges of fiscal management of multiple grants and contracts in support of the centers in a University environment. AUCD will continue to provide technical assistance activities when the needs arise, but encourage the workgroup to use the listserve when there are questions, or resources, events and information to share.

In addition, AUCD will continue disseminate information and resources on this listserve that is relevant to your work. If you have any comments or concerns on the new structure of the workgroup or if you have any questions in general please feel free to contact Anna Costalas.

UCEDD Discussion Forum: Funding Series

One commonality UCEDDs share is funding; centers all have their core funding and are required to leverage funds. The question is, how do they allocate those funds and maximize relationships with funders to effectively support their center's infrastructure, activities, and development? With the assistance of a workgroup of UCEDD directors and business managers, a series of six discussion forums on funding and funding relationships was designed to provide an opportunity for UCEDD Directors and business managers to engage in open dialogue to inform and support their efforts at their respective UCEDDs. In lieu of formal presentations, information was solicited pertaining to the topic as part of the registration process and shared with guests prior to the discussion forum to inform the discussion. Please contact Tanisha Clarke if you have any questions.
