THE PORTOLAN GROUP COMPLETES STUDY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC'S SUPPORT SERVICES DIVISION

The University of the Pacific, a prestigious liberal arts university in Stockton, CA, selected The Portolan Group to do a complete analysis of its support services division. Staff from The Portolan Group analyzed the custodial, grounds, maintenance, duplicating, mailroom and lock/key departments of the university over the spring of 2003. They provided financial analysis, comparators and recommendations for making the division operate more effectively and efficiently.

Phil Stover, president and founder of The Portolan Group said, “We are very pleased to have been chosen to do such an intense study at such a prestigious university. We found a very well-run division that is reflective of the university’s commitment to excellence. We are pleased that our final report was approved by the evaluation committee, the campus-wide priorities management team, the administration and the board of regents.”

The university administration has asked the staff of The Portolan Group to come back to monitor the progress made in implementation of the recommendations.
