Senate Bill 270, which was approved by the Oregon Legislature in the 2013 Legislative Session, establishes in section 166a the Work Group on University Shared Services, consisting of the presidents of the seven public universities or the presidents’ designees. The work group is tasked with developing a recommended shared services model that delivers efficient and effective administrative operations to participating post-secondary institutions in a manner that focuses on quality, responsiveness and customer service and that seeks to achieve cost savings, economies of scale, accountability, transparency and streamlining.
