The Controller’s Office has made dramatic improvements in the amount of time necessary to process 1099 tax forms, with the help of the Office of Continuous Improvement (OCI), says Ed Verhamme, accounts payable manager. “It was a team effort,” he says. A group of seven staffers, representing three different departments in the Controller’s Office, partnered with OCI to develop more efficient processes.
Improvements in the way vendor names were entered into the Banner software, for example, resulted in a reduction of review hours from 195 in 2010 to 28 in 2011.
