Instructional Planning and Administration (IPA) is a UC Davis-developed web application designed to make all aspects of academic scheduling faster and easier.
IPA grew out of the needs of the academic coordinators on the UC Davis campus. It was envisioned by the UC Davis Administrative Application Development Initiative (AADI) and designed in conjunction with a volunteer committee made up of staff members from many departments on campus. Product design and development was performed by the DSS IT Developers Group.
This application is designed to handle the departmental pre-purchasing process. PrePurchasing allows users to submit any type of order request, including KFS, AggieTravel, and other campus services. This application also aids in the departmental approval process associated with approving order requests. Seamless integration with KFS.
