For three years, leadership from both NACUBO and NAEP have worked with Spikes Cavell and an industry steering committee to develop a standard process for analyzing and benchmarking all campus non-personnel spend. Presenters will describe how North Carolina State University has utilized the resulting Spendmetric process to identify opportunities for savings without significantly impacting academic programs.

Learning Objectives

  • Capture value from existing data to inform both strategic and operational issues.
  • Gain insight into spending that might otherwise be cloaked by the size of an operational unit/campus and therefore not representative of the value of the money spent.
  • Identify collaborative opportunities with peers both on your campus and between campuses.
