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.
