Awards highlight innovation in the time of COVID

It took some innovation on the part of the Office of University Controller (OUC), but the 2020 CU Innovation and Efficiency Awards voting finally took place in August via Zoom, aided by some great motion graphics presentations created by Michael Edwards, the OUC’s motion and graphic designer.

In a normal year, all award semi-finalists would be showcased at an expo where CU employees are invited to browse exhibits created by each of the teams and view their innovations in action. Because that is not possible this year, the controller’s office invites you to a virtual expo,, where the 2020 award winners are announced and celebrated, along with a taste of the exciting innovations they’ve created.

After viewing the video, click through the website to view or read about all of the great submissions received in 2020, as well as those from years past.

On behalf of the CU Innovation and Efficiency Awards, the OUC thanks the winners, semi-finalists and all CU employees who took the time to submit this year. Your vision and efforts to improve business processes at CU are appreciated, and we hope to hear more from you in the future.

Next year’s program gets underway Dec. 1.
