On October 29, UC Berkeley received a “Focus of Efficiency” award for work in developing Campus Shared Services (CSS) at the California Public Higher Education Collaborative Business Conference.
Peggy Huston, CSS Chief Operating Offer, Cathy Jen, CSS Team 2/ERSO Service Director, and Sandi Ketchpel, Assistant Dean of Administration and Operations for the Goldaman School of Public Policy, attended and presented at the conference. Their presentation, “A Panoramic View of Shared Services”, included information about the design of CSS, how existing shared services units on campus influenced CSS, and the impact of shared services on campus academic units. They spoke to the challenges that have been resolved, the benefits that have been realized, and the work that lies ahead to achieve the long term goals of CSS.
