The state Board of Regents and Deloitte consulting will turn attention to phase two of the ongoing efficiency study to review of university administration, as the academic year winds down.

The study is now in the week eight of the first phase. The work will continue on the academic review aspects as well but at a slower pace, according to a regent press release. 

Deloitte representatives will be on campuses through the week of May 12 in order to continue reviewing academic aspects of the universities and to conduct follow up interviews with faculty, staff, and students, according to the release.

The academic review will take on a bigger focus again in the fall, when faculty and staff return to campus.

The efficiency study is the first study of its kind since the 1980s and will cost the regents $2.45 million. Funds found from any inefficiencies found will be reinvested in the area they were found in.

The regents hope to find savings of $15 million to $24 million with the review.
