Administrative Transformation Program (ATP)
Over the years, campuses across the UW System have relied on outdated, disconnected technology and supplemental systems to complete vital administrative processes and tasks. This has created security risks, limits our access to reliable data, increases staff burden, and hinders the UW from fulfilling its mission.
The Administrative Transformation Program aims to reverse this trend.
ATP is dedicated to standardizing finance, human resources, and research administration business processes and implementing Workday and Huron Research Suite, integrated, cloud-based technology systems, at all UW System campuses. The end result will be a more resilient administrative environment that advances the UW’s mission of research, teaching, and outreach.
To make this possible, ATP is guided by those who know best: UW’s dedicated faculty and staff. The ATP Team works closely with subject matter experts from all UW System campuses every step of the way, from business process redesign through validation, implementation, and support.
