Welcome to APR 

Administrative Process Redesign (APR)  provides our campus with a framework for efficiency, improving how we do business and changing how we interact with one another. It was initiated in response to tighter administrative budgets, pending staff retirements and on-going technological changes.
 
APR is also playing an integral role in Administrative Excellence (AE), an initiative to identify opportunities for our campus to become more effective and efficient, and find ways to save monies.  Seven AE teams working on large projects received approval from campus leaders to move forward with their recommendations. For more information and updates, visit www.adminexcellence.wisc.edu

APR is about teamwork, building a better university and creating a better future. We'll accomplish these goals by inclusively and transparently engaging our campus community. We welcome your comments and questions.

VCFA Strategic Priorities and Operational Goals

In support of the VCFA Strategic Priorities of Engagement, Inclusion and Diversity, Student Engagement and Resource Stewardship, APR assisted the strategic teams in developing the goals and objectives for 2012-13 and 2013-14.  APR is also serving as the strategic lead for Resource Stewardship, providing metrics and a reporting template for use by each VCFA unit.

In addition to the Strategic Priorities, the APR staff is assisting each of the VCFA units in aligning consistent metrics for ongoing measurement of their annual, operational goals. These measures will be reported into a VCFA dashboard, reflecting quarterly updates on process improvements and unit goals.

The Resource Guide that has been prepared for the VCFA units is available here
