Next Phases of the Comprehensive Administrative Review Coming Soon

As announced in December, Georgia Tech is participating in the University System of Georgia (USG) Comprehensive Administrative Review (CAR). The next phases of the CAR will launch this month.

To support the findings from the Opportunity Identification Survey conducted in December, Huron Consulting will begin conducting interviews and focus groups on campus beginning January 8. Individuals and select groups are being contacted to begin the scheduling process.

Beginning January 16, approximately 3,500 staff employees at Tech will be asked to participate in the Activity Assessment to better understand how resources are allocated to perform the various administrative functions. The assessment will be open from Jan. 16 to 30. Those selected to participate will receive additional communications including emails sent directly from Georgia Tech ­– CAR Activity Assessment.

Participation in the assessment is mandatory for the selected individuals and should take, on average, 30 minutes to complete. In addition, supervisors and managers will be asked to review and validate the assessment submissions between Feb. 5 and Feb. 13.  

Prior to the launch of the Activity Assessment, staff and supervisors are encouraged to review resources prepared to assist in the implementation of this assessment. Online information sessions (see schedule in sidebar), which are designed to review the CAR process, including information related to the upcoming Activity Assessment, are being conducted by Strategic Consulting this month.

Later this spring, Huron Consulting will prepare a draft report containing key findings and recommendations to deliver to Georgia Tech’s leadership, as well as the USG. A final report will be generated once all 28 institutions have completed this process in 2019.

Visit the USG CAR website for more information on the systemwide project. Questions about Georgia Tech’s participation in this process may be forwarded to askcar@gatech.edu.
