Reducing bureaucracy: Efforts across campus

Reducing the bureaucratic burden at Berkeley

Efforts to reduce the bureaucratic burden are happening all over campus! Many units and teams are finding areas that can be improved and are tackling those problems to improve processes, save money and simplify systems. A few of these projects are highlighted below; more can be found on this spreadsheet.

We are very much interested in learning about your efforts. Please continue to share your unit’s process improvement efforts with us by submitting this short form. You are also welcome to share your ideas and suggestions for how we can continue to streamline and reduce bureaucracy by emailing our office at or directly connecting with functional experts.
