Administrative professionals routinely intersect with their organization’s technology infrastructure. Whether you outsource or insource your foundation’s technology needs, it is critical to understand how to approach projects so you make decisions that fit your specific organization needs and capacity and maximize your return on investment.
Guli Basu, Information Services Operations Manager at the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, will guide us through key elements to making smart IT decisions.


  • Assessing your business and technology needs and determining the project scope.
  • Identifying your human resources and human capital requirements. 
  • Strategizing beyond your immediate need to ensure a long-term return on investment. 
For the second half of the meeting, we’ll gather advice and suggestions from Ms. Basu and FAN peers on how to improve administrative functions that intersect with IT. Consider projects you are looking to implement, manage, or streamline. What processes, protocols, or procedures that tie administration and IT would benefit from our group’s advice?
