Greg Williams and Glenn Adams
for Developing the Project Prioritization Database
Auburn University recently implemented a process to identify projects and prioritize them to assist the University in making project investment decisions. Begun in May, 2009, over 200 projects were submitted by the Vice Presidents, Deans, and Directors across campus. To handle this large amount of information and to facilitate the prioritization process through its many steps, Glenn Adams and Greg Williams of the Facilities Management Information Technology staff innovatively developed a sophisticated database to support this major University effort. Using this database, Glenn and Gregg provided timely and quality information to University leaders to allow them to assess project and establish priorities. This information will keep the University community informed regarding the status of the process—a key element in making this an “open and transparent process” as demanded by the University leaders. Without the exceptional efforts of Glenn and Greg, the prioritization process could not have been completed.
