Step One: Improve Processes

Achieving Administrative Excellence starts with our processes. The AdminX team is leading a process improvement effort on campus to define problem processes, evaluate the current state, brainstorm improvements, and design and implement an enhanced process. Phase 1 of this effort focuses on HR and Enterprise Service Desk Processes.

In addition, there are other improvement efforts happening concurrently with AdminX including the Academic & Research priorities (led by ERP), the Student Hiring Improvement Project (led by GTHR), and Faculty Hiring Improvement (led by Faculty Affairs).

The Administrative Services Center (ASC)

The Administrative Services Center (ASC) is a deliverable of the AdminX initiative. The ASC is an ecosystem of people, services, and processes built to serve the Institute. The ASC will allow central and local units to focus on strategy while the ASC handles high-volume, routine transactions. This will shift the focus for local units from creating transactions to requesting transactions.

Transactions types ranging from HR, to finance, to research and administration could live within the ASC. All transactions will undergo process improvement prior to ASC onboarding to enable the ASC to provide the most efficient and high-quality service.

Service that Excels

The ASC will provide access to high quality services and expertise, regardless of your unit’s size.

Focus on Transformation

The ASC will allow your unit to focus on mission-critical services instead of getting bogged down by routine transactions.

Streamlined & Standardized Processes

With cross-trained resources and consistent procedures, the staff in the ASC is available to provide support when you need it.

Continuous Improvement

Through the creation and deployment of the ASC, we will work to find better ways to utilize our ERP systems and become more efficient.
