In 2012, the University of Colorado System Administration began a process of self-assessment of its 20 
administrative units and service centers to determine if they are meeting the university’s identified 
needs. The administrative unit review process includes a unit self-assessment, an external stakeholder 
assessment, a review of findings with unit managers, and development of recommendations and action 
plans which are presented to the System Vice Presidents. In addition: 
 Current shared services are evaluated and units are asked to consider areas where shared 
services could be improved; and 
 Current processes which could benefit from additional review and analysis are identified. 
To date, the following units have completed their reviews: 
 Vice President for Budget and Finance 
 Procurement Services Center 
 Office of University Controller 
 University Risk Management 
Administrative Unit Reviews, currently in progress: 
 Payroll and Benefit Services
