PRODUCTIVITY TARGETS

Broad productivity target ratios have been established for four "production" type A&BS services: Accounting, Materiel Management, Parking, and Human Resources. These productivity targets have been established for 1996-97, based on roughly doubling the productivity improvement rate observed for these units (as a group) over the 1982-92 period.

The following summaries show the target productivity growth rate for the five-year period 1991-92 through 1996-97, the rationale behind the selected productivity ratios, and the resultant 1996-97 productivity targets.

ACCOUNTING

Productivity indicator: Ratio of total campus net expenditures to Accounting net expenditures

(Note: To arrive at "net" expenditures, campus expenditures have been reduced by recharges, hospital, and utility expenditures; accounting expenditures have been reduced by recharges.)

Basis of indicator: Overall financial activity is a broad-based driver of Accounting workload, and inflation is cancelled in this ratio.

Approximate productivity increase 1982-83 to 1991-92: 1.8%/year

Targeted productivity increase 1991-92 to 1996-97: 3.6%/year

PRODUCTIVITY TARGET FOR 1996-97: Ratio of total campus net expenditures to Accounting net expenditures = $205

Results to date are included in the Progress Report Section (4.3).

MATERIEL MANAGEMENT

Productivity indicator: Ratio of total campus non-salary expenditures to Materiel Management expenditures

(Note: Campus non-salary expenditures have been have been adjusted to exclude benefits, utilities, and Medical Center expenditures.)

Basis of indicator: Procurement volume is a broad-based driver of Materiel Management workload, and inflation is cancelled in this ratio.

Approximate productivity increase 1982-83 to 1991-92: 4.7%/year

Targeted productivity increase 1991-92 to 1996-97: 6.0%/year

PRODUCTIVITY TARGET FOR 1996-97: Ratio of total campus non-salary expenditures to Materiel Management expenditures = $50

Results to date are included in the Progress Report Section (4.3).

HUMAN RESOURCES

Productivity indicator: Ratio of total campus employees to Human Resources FTE

Basis of indicator: Employment level is a broad-based driver of Human Resources workload.

Approximate productivity increase 1982-83 to 1991-92: 1%/year

Targeted productivity increase 1991-92 to 1996-97: 3.6%/year

PRODUCTIVITY TARGET FOR 1996-97: Ratio of total campus employees to Human Resources FTE = 300

Results to date are included in the Progress Report Section (4.3).

PARKING

Productivity indicator: Ratio of active parking permits to parking staff.

Basis of indicator: The number of active parking permits drives the activities of administrative, enforcement, and alternate transportation staff.

Approximate productivity increase 1982-83 to 1991-92: 2.5%/year

Targeted productivity increase 1991-92 to 1996-97: 5.0%/year

PRODUCTIVITY TARGET FOR 1996-97: Ratio of active parking permits to parking staff = 715

Results to date are included in the Progress Report Section (4.3).
