Strategic priorities informed by DFA Framework for Success
The Division of Finance and Administration’s strategic initiatives arise from the DFA Framework for Success key performance indicators and key activities, together with OSU’s broader context. The division's priorities, projects and actions are intended to advance OSU’s strategic goals.
DFA senior leaders defined the Division of Finance and Administration’s strategic priorities for fiscal years 2023 through 2026, which will guide the division’s investments, projects and actions. They considered anticipated funding levels, the near-term needs of the university community and other factors to establish these priorities. They serve as a guide that helps everyone in the division best focus our limited resources, and they help make sure our outcomes align with the DFA guiding principles and OSU’s strategic plan. The four priorities in focus for fiscal year (FY) 2023-2026 are:
Advance a safe and inclusive environment
Modernize administrative processes
Modernize academic and research infrastructure
Be an Oregon employer of choice (by improving recruitment and expanding a welcoming and supportive workplace culture)
This short list of major priorities helps units across the Division of Finance and Administration focus limited resources on projects and actions that are most important to OSU stakeholders. These four priorities also encompass the elements of the division’s diversity, equity and inclusion action plan, described in more detail at the DFA Inclusive Excellence website.
The current year's priorities and projects are listed below.
