what eh s is doing
What EH&S is doing…
  • Pilot rollout of Remedy Interactive software

for employee self-assess and training

(3 Divisions- OCFO, IT and EH&S)

  • Fulltime Ergo Desk for help at x 5818
  • Increasing ergo staff for “discomfort evals”
  • Rollout Ergo Advocate training program - more resources!
  • Improving the Ergo Database - clear, concise and user friendly


what you can do to control injuries
What you can do to control injuries…
  • Set realistic expectations for staff workloads
  • Plan ahead for spikes and crunch periods
  • Adjust for shifts in people resources
  • Create a supportive work atmosphere
  • Require Supervisor Ergo training EH&S 22
  • Prompt staff to report ergo problems and request evals early
  • Implement Ergo Eval recommendations promptly…or faster!
  • Encourage people to get up and move
  • Call Ergo at extension 5818 or email Ergo@lbl.gov for assistance
what s the problem 14m

Moving people and money between LBNL & UC is difficult & time consuming

What’s the Problem? ~$14m
  • Confusing processes and mechanisms (e.g. IUTs) are used to handle:
    • Multi Location Appointments (MLAs)-non Faculty
    • Joint Faculty Appointments
    • GSRAs
    • R&D Subcontracts

Persistent unresolved issues hinder scientific collaborations

Significant resources are expended on maintaining inefficient processes

decrease the cost of doing business
Decrease the Cost of Doing Business

Reduce total indirect costs

    • G&A
    • Recharges
    • Burdens
  • Efficiencies
    • Within Ops Divisions
    • Across Ops Divisions
    • Partnership with Science Divisions
    • With Internal Audit
  • Reduce services
  • Changed business model
travel re engineering recommendations
Travel Re-engineering Recommendations
  • Develop one consistent institutional process *
    • Divisions are currently handling pre & post-travel processes in many different ways:
      • Some don’t require pre-approval
      • # of approvals vary
      • Use of Gelco varies by division
  • Domestic travel: require pre-approval within divisions; recommend using email
  • Reimburse traveler only after all required receipts have been submitted *
  • Highly encourage practice of reimbursing for actual cost of meals & incidental expenses (M&IE) up to maximum per diem rates, and clarify policy
  • Default reimbursement (other than airfare) directly to employee’s bank account rather than disbursing checks*
  • Move expense reimbursement of travel to Disbursements *
  • If above recommendations are adopted, replace Gelco with an intuitive, user-friendly interface coupled with PeopleSoft travel module, and also mandate use of system
  • The system should be used by all travelers

*Represents best practice

937 move back to the hill
937 Move Back to the Hill
  • 937 Lease Expires April, 2009 – We Will Move
  • Lease cost is $1.8M a year
  • Moving out over a phased period – TBD when
  • Current plan is for OCFO to be mostly co-located in and around building 90 and the 90 trailers
  • Some units may co-locate in building 46 as well
budget outlook
Budget Outlook
  • OCFO FY 07 Budget reduced ~$600k
  • Accomplished thru 100% Voluntary Reduction In Force – Across all of OCFO
  • Continuing Resolution/Omnibus Bill
    • Under CR, no new project starts
    • Omnibus may provide some level of funding for large initiatives but not in detail (like a single appropriation)
    • IF Omnibus bill passes we will receive up-front funding rather than incremental, but even after it is signed it will take 1.5 months to receive…at best
  • Thanks for your significant contributions!
