Shared Services

The Shared Services Steering Committee includes a representative from the Faculty and from the Staff Council.

The committee charge is as follows: 

  • Provide advisement, directional guidance and feedback to the project team throughout the planning process for the build and implementation of the shared services operating model;
  • Represent the interests and concerns of your college, school or unit faculty, staff, students and peers; and
  • Represent the project team to the larger University of Texas at Austin community.

The Shared Services subcommittees will be made up of representatives from each of the areas affected in the transformation: Human Resource Services, Payroll, Finance, Procurement and Information Technology Services (ITS). Preliminary plans are to establish four subcommittees related to the three shared service functions identified by the Business Productivity Committee. Customer Service will be a primary focus.

  • Human Resources/Payroll
  • Finance/Procurement
  • Information Technology (IT)
  • Customer Services, including Service Level Agreements

On April 2, 2014, President Powers provided his endorsement of the Findings and Recommendations of the Shared Services Steering Committee.
