The Iowa Board of Regents released a list of eight areas consultant Deloitte says will be the focus of the second phase of an effort to increase efficiency at the three state-supporterd universities. Regents spokesperson, Sheila Doyle Koppin, spoke with reporters about the information.


The eight areas are: Sourcing & Procurement (purchasing practices); Academic Programs; Information Technology Services; Facilities; Finance; Human Resources; Strategic Space Utilization and Student Services. Koppin says the consultants will now focus these areas.


The information released is very general and gives no estimates on how much money the schools could save in each area. Koppin says they are not putting any numbers on any of the areas at this point.

The Board of Regents has already approved three-point-five million dollars for the review. The review started with a focus of over 100 areas and was narrowed down to the final eight. The sports operations at University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa were not in the final cut.

The phase two forums will begin on June 16th at the University of Northern Iowa. The second is at the University of Iowa on June 19th and the final forum is at Iowa State University on June 24th. You can see the complete summary of the phase one report on the board’s website at: www.regents.iowa.gov
