The state of Colorado recently introduced an employee-recognition program aimed at generating cost-cutting ideas for state agencies. A similar venture is the University of Colorado's own recognition program, introduced last October as an Office of University Controller initiative.
CU Shared Practices (CUSP) welcomes the submission of ideas that could generate a positive fiscal impact or conserve existing resources. Ideas may be submitted at www.cu.edu/controller/initiatives/cusp/; the OUC will confirm that it is in practice and that there is no conflict with existing policies and procedures – and publish it on the CUSP website to share with your university colleagues.
With prizes ranging from $500 to $2,000, the office urges everyone to get creative, join in and meet us on the CUSP.
