As costs continue to out-pace revenues in college athletics, it is essential that athletic departments operate efficiently and cost-effectively, while maintaining their competiveness at the highest levels possible. The JMI Sports team has decades of knowledge of athletic operations that can be used to help an institution develop a plan to maximize resources, no matter the size of the school or budget. We can undertake a comprehensive analysis that includes evaluation of selected university operations, producing findings and recommendations as to their efficiency within the parameters of the greater institutional structure.
Many facility operations are plagued with high university costs and continual expense overruns. The JMI Sports team has extensive on-campus experience that translates into expertise on how universities can operate their facilities in the most efficient and effective manner possible. JMI Sports can assess the productivity of a school’s internal operations as well as its third party contracts. In doing so, we will help identify solutions to improve an athletic department’s bottom line.
In the absence of a continuing NCAA sponsored Division I institutional self-study process, the responsibility to comprehensively audit a university’s athletic operations in the areas of governance, rules compliance, academic standards and support, gender and minority issues, and student athlete well-being, is now left with the institution. The JMI Sports team can provide a thorough review in these critical areas, examining the philosophies, operations, policies, procedures, and implementations of the athletic department within the framework of the institution.
