Berkeley Could Save $75-Million by Cutting Inefficiencies, Report Says

The University of California at Berkeley could save $75-million each year by adopting a series of efficiency measures, according to an internal report released today. The university hired an outside consultant, Bain & Company, to help produce the report, which recommends coordinating purchases, centralizing information-technology operations, and simplifying a many-tiered managerial structure, in which more than half of all managers (excluding faculty members) have three or fewer subordinates directly reporting to them. Today’s report is seen as a model by some in the University of California system for how campuses could save money after severe cuts in state support.
