Benefits of the Program Action Form

  • Electronic. Program Action Forms (PAF) are created and submitted online with an automated workflow.

  • Allows for easier collaboration in proposing/editing programs. All faculty and staff at the university have access to the online system. Each person working on the proposal can make changes, save them, and come back to resume work at a later time. Changes made to the form are captured through red/green markup to show information that has been removed (red/strikethrough) or added (green/underlined).

  • Facilitates complete proposals. The form uses logic and dependencies to hide or reveal form fields based on the answers to previous questions.

  • Automates workflow. Proposals move forward efficiently based on school and university-level approval requirements. Users do not need to rely on the university's program approval matrix to determine the correct approval governance.

  • Provides proposal transparency. The form shows and tracks edits and comments, making review and status of proposals easy to follow.

  • Synchronizes updates with the General Bulletin. Once proposals are finalized through the electronic PAF process, the next edition of the Bulletin will automatically reflect the changes.
