UConn is changing the way it does business.
In recent years, leaders and managers across the University have examined their budgets, found ways to reduce expenses, improve processes and find efficiencies. The Office of Budget and Planning undertook an initiative to reach out to departments across the University and catalog the great work that has taken place and share the results in a program called Spend Smart .
The results have been overwhelmingly positive, with over 200 initiatives that were implemented by 41 departments, schools / colleges and units totaling nearly $36.9M.
To share best practices, ideas and highlight the many success stories this portal was developed to serve as a resource for departments across the University.
What we have to offer
Many of the things outlined in our collection of Spend Smart initiatives were accomplished using resources that are already available right on campus! In each section below, we have highlighted resources that are currently available to help your department improve efficiencies and tools to reduce operating expenses.
