The UO portfolio has broadened its focus to tackle the area of administrative and operational excellence. UO developed and announced an operational excellence target for new revenues and efficiency savings. The target of $50M cumulative total over 6 years, and $10M in the final year, was the goal for the portfolio. The goal was exceeded within the first 5 years, reaching $54 million in cumulative savings in June 2015. Projects credited towards the target will include both those inside the portfolio and those developed in partnership with others.
