In July 2006, Virginia approved the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act, which gives state universities freedom to control areas such as personnel management. The Human Resources Staff of both universities collaborated closely with CSR to construct a common questionnaire to respond to this action. The purpose of this project was to conduct a comprehensive survey of the supervisors and staff of Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia to assess their attitudes toward human resources policies. The results of the survey were used to guide the restructuring process of the institutions` human resources practices. The principle mode was internet with telephone reminders and some paper completions.
