During the data collection phase of the organizational assessment, we learned requests for data and information to UT System institutions from UT System Administration are a significant burden. Reducing and streamlining those requests would be an important action to take.
In order to take that action, UT System Administration has created an online process. All requests for data and information must be sent through this online process. Following the submission of the request, the Office of Strategic Initiatives will respond within 5 days to determine whether the data exists within UT System Administration and provide an estimated timeline for delivery or offer alternative sources to fulfill the request. If the data is not internally available and the alternatives do not meet the needs, the Executive Advisory Group will review the request and if approved, you will have the opportunity to request the required information from the institution(s). Recurring requests for information must use this process as well.
Departmental feedback will be critical to ensure the balance of internal operational needs as well as institutional needs. For more information, please review the memorandum from the Deputy Chancellor or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
