Through its shared services initiative, SUNY will reduce administrative costs and move those resources toward direct instruction and student services. Over the next 3 years, all SUNY campuses will shift—at minimum—5% of their administrative spending to academics and student services, resulting in $100M being invested in instruction. Savings will come from four main areas:
-IT Transformation – As outlined below a complete transformation of how we manage and use IT will not only drive savings but increase our overall service levels provided to our students and the campuses.
-Regional/Centralized Administrative Centers - Transaction based processes will provide improved service at a reduced costs for payroll, benefits, accounts payable, travel, and other basic administrative functions.
-Campus Alliance Network - Launched in August 2011, the Campus Alliance Network's partners campuses to achieve savings, efficiencies and improved services. Working together the campuses establish their own plans, but as a System we share in our successes and best practices.

The purpose of the SUNY Shared Services Steering Committee is to help coordinate and bring to scale the ideas that will come from the twelve Shared Services Alliances across the system. The committee will advise the chancellor and the System Administration Executive Team as well as their colleagues on the campuses on savings and efficiencies that might be found, vet ideas that are submitted to them by the SSAs, and help make decisions on systemwide initiatives for shared services. This group will be convened by the SUNY System Provost, SUNY System CFO, and the Chancellor’s Special Advisor on Shared Services.
The membership of the committee will consist of the following:
The committee will be charged with creating a report with specific recommendations based on proposals from the Shared Services Alliances. This will include benchmarking ongoing and future projects that will sustain long-term savings and better serve our students.
