ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO
Do you have a cost savings idea to further streamline our administration or our programs and save costs? We want to hear it. You can share your idea by logging into IdeaWave using your SSO (single sign-on account) and locate the “It Pays to Save!” campaign in the rotating banner at the top of the screen.
With your help, Saving Total Costs by Efficient Processes (STEP) seeks to identify opportunities in campus processes that can yield demonstrable reductions in total costs to the campus. In particular, we are looking for ideas that will continue to meet service standards while simultaneously saving costs to the entire organization. While not required, you are invited to include any preliminary estimates of expected cost savings and overall impact.
Submit your cost saving ideas today by logging into IdeaWave and clicking ‘Submit your idea.’ Be sure to review your colleagues’ ideas and provide commentary and feedback by submitting a comment. When you “join the conversation” with your colleagues, it helps improve the collective quality of the idea submissions, as well as related outcomes.
After three weeks, the idea submission period will end. You will have one additional week to vote and comment on ideas that have been submitted by UC San Diego faculty, staff, and student staff.
Thank you in advance for your ideas and your participation in the “It Pays to Save!” IdeaWave campaign.
