The University of Illinois Utilities Division (UIUD) faces significant challenges in today's environment where rising fuel cost coupled with financial resources have not increased at the same rate required to generate power. The results have made it necessary for UIUD to find ways to increase its productivity while lowering appropriate costs. UIUD must look beyond standard practices for new business strategies that promise results amidst regulatory and public scrutiny.
