A new centrally supported Enterprise Document Management System for the UW to digitize, store and manage electronic business documents is expected to be available by early 2015, supporting paperless workflow, increased efficiencies and cross-department collaboration, while reducing the UW’s environmental impact. The new technologies will enable secure access and improved compliance with record retention policies. A pilot phase with several collaborating departments is underway for 2014. This initiative is a partnership of Financial Management, Office of Planning & Budgeting, Office of Research, Records Management, School of Medicine, Student Life, UW Bothell and UW-IT.
