Administrative Transformation Program (ATP) & Workday update
Dear University of Wisconsin – Green Bay Community:
The University of Wisconsin System is committed to the advancement of our shared mission across the state. To ensure future success, we must be forward thinking about the infrastructure required to support business processes and technology for all the UW campuses.
In 2019, the Board of Regents approved the creation of the Administrative Transformation Program (ATP) and charged the team with establishing a plan to streamline and standardize finance, human resources, and research administration processes across the entire UW System. This change is needed because our current technology and systems:
- Limit our access to reliable data
- Create burdensome workflows for administrative staff
- Introduce security risks
- Do not allow us to meet the ever-evolving requirements of higher education
ATP will replace much of the outdated technology we use today with the cloud-based Workday enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and a Huron Research Suite solution (Research Administration Modernization Project, or RAMP) to manage financial, human resource, and research administration activities.
The Workday implementation relies on ATP’s people-first approach to ensure we realize the benefits of improved processes, efficiencies, consistency, and transparency. Representatives from our campus have served on Design Focus and Validation Groups, as well as a Campus Readiness Team, which will provide updates as we prepare for Workday end-user training in March of 2024, ahead of Workday go-live in July 2024.
To find out more information about ATP, including information about the UW-Green Bay Readiness Team, project timeline, and links to more details regarding transformations within Finance, Human Resources, and Research Administration, please take a look at our newly-created UW-Green Bay ATP website.
The support and engagement of our campus is critical to the success of this endeavor. I want to thank you in advance for your participation in this effort to better serve our faculty, staff, and students.
