About The Award

As UCR's Associate Vice Chancellor for Computing and Communications, Larry Sautter led the Riverside campus in technological innovation through entrepreneurial, effective, and efficient use of the resources at his disposal. The University of California Joint Operations Group (JOG) has instituted this award in his memory to encourage and recognize innovators in the deployment of information technology to conduct the University's business.

The Sautter Award Program seeks to highlight the best practices in information technology in the University by identifying exemplary innovations that:

  • Make good use of resources and can be adopted by other University departments or campuses
  • Promote innovation that has the potential to improve the way the University conducts its business, even when the impact of the innovation will not be felt immediately
  • Define criteria for assessing innovative projects and set high standards for information technology deployment; that recognize innovative deployments of information technology without regard to the resources available to the initiating department or campus
  • Offer rewards for risk taking.

Awards are offered for

  • Best IT Practices in Business Processes and Services
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Information Technology
  • Achievement in University Computing
