Preparing for Service Transformation

The Transforming our Professional Services (TOPS) Programme has been running since 2016. Given the unprecedented uncertainties universities now face, having the most effective and efficient professional services has never been more important to help UCL sustain its position as one of the leading universities in the world, and generate funds to invest in its academic mission in the same way as our global competitors are doing. Between 2016 and now we have gained a clear understanding from colleagues of the ‘pain points’, and where there are duplications and multiple inefficiencies. We have developed high-level plans of what we need to do to transform our professional services to make them both effective and efficient, as summarised on the TOPS website. In July, UCL Council approved the investment plan to proceed with the transformation in a staged way.
