What Is ATP?

The Administrative Transformation Program (ATP) is much more than an organizational redesign project, process overhaul initiative, or system implementation. ATP encompasses a number of initiatives working to advance the University of Wisconsin’s mission, all united by a defined set of principles and approaches.

Learning from those who know best

A comprehensive transformation begins with UW’s faculty and staff. Guided by their expertise, we will redesign policies and processes and use technology to support future work.

ATP Projects

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation Project
