Strategic Initiatives

Strategic Initiatives are the Business System & Strategies Team's (BSST) effort to win success at all levels of Facilities Management by transforming & aligning systems & strategies.

The Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Program is being developed to enable the strategic management of assets (facilities, equipment, land, space, leases), resources, and technology through process and systems redesign. We will leverage the best of what already works here at the U along with leading industry practices to help shape our future asset management program across all U of M campuses.

The Time & Labor project will move the current payroll functions and time card/hour entry from COMPASS to a new solution. The U Services Finance team has partnered with the Enterprise Asset Management team to form a project team to handle the transition of payroll and timekeeping functions from FAMIS to a new application.

Project Governance creates a standard process for better planning & implementation of new initiatives, tracking of project health, management of project portfolios, prioritization of projects, and support for project owners.
