Customers across campus can contract with the CBO for services such as procurement, fiscal management, budgeting, and personnel management. The CBO will also assist departments in establishing their own central processing unit upon request. Identifying and implementing the centralized delivery of administrative functions provides improved efficiency. This is increasingly important as limited resources across the University are being reallocated to support its core academic and research mission.

The CBO brings value to its customers and the University as a whole by consolidating business and administrative functions and implementing a best practices approach to these services. By having financial and business personnel manage and process business transactions, research and academic professionals are freed up to focus on their areas of expertise. Departments that contract with the CBO for services can expect to maintain or improve service quality, increase career opportunities for staff, and reduce administrative costs.
