Campus Shared Services
Campus Shared Services (CSS), a division of the UC Berkeley Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance, provides reliable, high-quality administrative support to faculty, academics, staff, student employees, and retirees in support of the UC Berkeley mission of teaching, research, and public service.
- Make it easier to get things done by simplifying and standardizing certain common administrative tasks and processes across the entire campus.
- Direct more resources toward Berkeley’s teaching, research and public service mission by generating significant savings for the campus.
- Meet the unique needs of departments, labs, units, and our campus by drawing from the expertise of staff and faculty throughout the design and implementation.
An Operational Excellence Program
Campus Shared Services (CSS) began as a part of UC Berkeley’s Operational Excellence effort, a multi-year, multi-project effort to make the operations of UC Berkeley more efficient so that the University may direct more resources toward teaching and research.
The original CSS Funding Model was approved by the OE Executive Committee in February 2013 and was in effect through June 30, 2016. The funding model for FY16/17 – forward is being reviewed.
