Digital Administration and Process Management

The staff unit Digital Administration and Process Management deals with the digital transformation of the administration at LIfBi in connection with the gradual establishment of digital processes. These are successively documented, gradually optimised or, together with those responsible for and involved in the processes, also newly developed.

In organisational terms, the area is assigned to the staff of the Administrative Director and is divided into the sub-areas of Digital Administration and Process Management.

Digital Administration

The tasks in this area include: 

  • Inventory product analysis of the current software landscape
  • Needs analysis with the working units of the administration
  • Market research in connection with budget-compatible consolidation of existing products
  • Use of standardised interfaces to ensure data exchange without media discontinuity
  • Promoting cooperation with other Leibniz Institutes to develop joint solutions

Process Management

The Process Management staff unit is responsible for:

  • Standardisation, documentation and optimisation of administrative processes
  • Clarifying the central question: "Who does what, when, how and with what?"
  • Ensuring that the process models and related documents are up to date through regular reviews.

In the coming years, the processes are to be further simplified and digitalised, taking into account legal requirements.
