If you want to be the best, you’ve got to measure against the best. That’s something the 13 units that make up the Office of the Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer know. They recently launched an effort to measure key unit functions against peers, some inside and many outside higher education.

"The best organizations in the world are never content with where they are,” said Dave Lawlor, UC Davis’ Chief Financial Officer. "They’re continuously searching for process improvement, ways to get to the next level.”
