The University of California announced the 2007 Larry L. Sautter Award recipients, recognizing information technology innovations, at the UC Computing Services Conference held at UC’s Santa Cruz campus today (July 30).
Kristine Hafner, UC’s systemwide associate vice president for information resources and communications, said five awards were presented this year:

Silver Awards for Achievement in University ComputingRapid Return - Electronic Exam Return: Save Time, Space, and Money (UC Irvine) GROWL Authorization Project (UC Riverside) Online Payment System and SecurePay (UC Riverside)
Sponsored by the UC Information Technology Leadership Council, the Sautter awards recognize information technology innovations that have the potential to improve UC administrative or academic processes. These innovative projects involve the use of technology rather than research, improve business processes or deliver academic or programmatic materials, and advance UC’s mission of teaching, research and public service.
In selecting the award winners, emphasis is given to projects that are unique, user-friendly, cost-effective, collaborative and easily transferable to other UC campuses.
