UWFT Guiding Principles

The UWFT has established the following Guiding Principles in partnership with leaders across the institution:

  1. Senior Leaders are engaged and unified in supporting UW Finance Transformation as a top administrative priority for the University of Washington. Leaders will provide focus needed to ensure a successful program
  2. Future state processes, policies and procedures are standardized and simplified, to ensure substantial productivity gains across the enterprise, justifying any exceptions
  3. The computing infrastructure and services are consolidated and integrated across the enterprise to eliminate redundancy, justifying any exceptions
  4. Financial and management reports result from a trusted system of record with consistently applied data definitions, eliminating redundant and disparate data repositories
  5. One of the key ways risk is mitigated is through clearly defined stage gates with entry and exit decision criteria
  6. Broad University engagement and communication to define, design, and implement the future state vision will ensure all units are operational at launch
