At UC Davis, the New Business Architecture (NBA) Initiative is a collaborative effort involving virtually all campus organizations. Every year, the NBA team will tackle a handful of business processes which, when re-engineered, will translate into simplified processes, cost savings, and/or greater efficiencies. Many of these processes, along with training and help resources, will be made available online via MyUCDavis the campus portal. Earlier this summer, the NBA Project Management Office started working with various campus units on the first NBA projects. These first projects are: Payroll Personnel System Control Improvements, Minor Capital Improvements, Building and Space Management, Policy and Procedures, and a new, Web-based Facilities Ordering System. More information on these projects and on the NBA Initiative is available on the NBA Web site.
