(The following is an email to campus from VC Administration, Marc Fisher.)
I am pleased to share that all administrative service regions are now operational with service teams assigned, executive leadership on board, websites launched, and a robust governance structure designed and operating. The service regions and supporting structure are collectively known as Berkeley Regional Services.
In addition to a new Berkeley Regional Services website, each of the six regions has its own website and your region’s site will serve as your primary hub for requesting administrative support services. The regional websites are simple for this launch; in the coming year they will be built out with more functionality and useful features. Individual regional websites and the clients they serve are:
Engineering, CED, I-School, and related ORUs and field stations
Chemistry, MPS, and related ORUs and field stations
CNR, Div. of Biological Sciences, and related ORUs, museums, and field stations
Div. of Social Sciences, Div. of Arts & Humanities, Undergraduate Div., and related ORUs
The professional schools and University Extension
Administrative, auxiliary, and other units not represented in the other regions
Not sure which is your region?

As part of the transition to regional services, CSS IT support will continue under the direction of Jerry Yerardi and is now reporting to the Office of the CIO and has been renamed IT Client Services.
Launching the regions has taken a considerable amount of work yet developing new service improvements will be ongoing. The Business Process Management Office publishes information and dashboards where you can read about current improvement projects and monitor their progress.
I am confident that the transition to regional services will, over time, lead to more personal and improved administrative support services to help you succeed in your academic and professional pursuits.
As always, I welcome your input and feedback.
Vice Chancellor, Administration
