Slate of 25 system policies under review

Office of Policy and Efficiency continues trimming of administrative material

The Office of Policy and Efficiency (OPE) has posted the updated list of "Policies Under Review" on the University Policy website, providing a preview of 25 system administrative policy statements (APS) currently under review for possible revision, deletion or addition.

If approved, the changes would become effective in January and would reduce the total number of system APSs from 101 to 97.

The site provides access to the current policy, a justification statement for the proposed actions and related policy drafts for revised and new policies. Questions and comments on the list of policy changes may be e-mailed to ope@cu.edu.

The President's Task Force on Efficiency will hold its next meeting Dec. 6; members are expected to discuss more recommendations aimed at improving efficiency at CU.

As of Nov. 1, 35 of the task force's 36 recommendations are implemented or at least partially implemented. The latest status report and other information about the task force can be found at www.cu.edu/efficiency, including opportunities to provide feedback about how the university may be more efficient and effective in its business.

OPE also will be posting links to personal financial tips on the task force website. The initial list of 10 Simple Ways to Save Money and Cut Spending at Home includes tips provided by CNNMoney.com and AARP.com.

Suggestions and/or feedback on the list may be sent to OPE at ope@cu.edu.
