Congratulations to Travis Chillemi, the OUC’s Strategic Communication Technology Manager! Travis recently earned a CU Shared Practices (CUSP) award for his radical redesign of the University’s Annual Financial Report.
Published barely a week ago, the new Illustrated Guide to the Annual Financial Report has already garnered many positive reviews via the Guide's Feedback section. Among the comments received to date are these:
I like the way this works!
Finally something that explains that tuition increases do not mean increases in pay for staff.
Such a great way to help people understand the financials!
Every year, CU produces an audited financial report with a vast amount of information that is very important to a number of constituencies: rating agencies, the State of Colorado, federal funding agencies, the Board of Regents, and the public. However...providing a vast amount of information is not the same as providing easily understandable information. So the Office of University Controller decided to present the data in easy-to-understand language and charts.
