At the end of July, we sent you a request for feedback on the 2017 KPMG document on the Administrative Services Review. Thank you for your frank and insightful comments. They have been very helpful as we prepare a comprehensive response. Attached to this email is a summary of this response. After raising concerns about timelines over the summer, the deadline for submission for initial feedback was extended to September 30, 2017; we continue to press for iterative, meaningful consultation over the fall and winter, given the possible consequences for UNB. We strongly encourage you to continue to ask questions and raise your concerns in your faculty councils and senates, and share them with colleagues, staff and administrators.
