RCM Three-Year Review Team

To: UA Campus Colleagues


Andrew Comrie, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs & Provost
Gregg Goldman, Senior Vice President for Business Affairs & CFO

Subject: RCM Three-Year Review Team

Date: November 15, 2017

At the time we implemented Responsibility Centered Management (RCM), the RCM Steering Committee recommended that a review team be established to review the first 3 years of RCM implementation and, if required, recommend adjustments and changes to our budget allocation model. It was important that the first three years remained consistent so that there would be some level of predictability. Now that we have entered the 3rd allocation year, it is time to bring a review team together and begin a review process that will identify potential improvements and adjustments that can be implemented for future RCM budget allocations.

We thank those listed below for agreeing to serve as members of the RCM Three- Year Review Team. Team membership reflects a balance of budget expertise, broader experience, membership on the original RCM Steering Committee, a range of types of units, shared governance, and more. Also, following the practice of the RCM Steering Committee, we will be inviting additional people to serve on working groups that will focus on specific topics.

We anticipate that the Review Team will carry out its work during the 2017-18 fiscal year and produce a report with a set of recommendations for consideration by President Robbins.
