Rationale for the Plan

An online, step - by -step "How - To" tutorial will provide 24-7 access to training guides for CUNYfirst financial modules. This will increase efficiencies and productivity among Business Office staff as well as the campus community providing end-users with the ability to get through the various CUNYfirst financial modules with ease.

Electronic Print Request forms will reduce the amount of time it takes to submit a print request and have it approved. It will also eliminate the excessive printing caused by the need for physical signatures. This functionality will ultimately reduce waste and save resources.

Data Collection and Evaluation

Data collection will take place in the fall 2019 semester. Business Office staff members will be involved in interpreting and analyzing the data. We will also use the data to improve existing processes.
