UC RIVERSIDE SELECTED TO HOST NEW EMPLOYEE SERVICE CENTER
After a thorough review and analysis, UCPath executive sponsors Peter Taylor, chief financial officer, and Nathan Brostrom, executive vice president of business operations, have selected UC Riverside as the host location for the UCPath Center, the new systemwide shared service center. The UCPath Center will process routine transactions related to payroll, workforce administration, benefits administration and leave management. UCLA, UCLA Medical Center, UC Merced, UC Santa Cruz and UC Office of the President (“Wave 1”) will begin using the services of the UCPath Center in July 2013. By 2014, all other campuses and medical centers will transition to the UCPath Center.
HOW WAS THE LOCATION CHOSEN?
All UC locations were invited to offer proposals to host the site for the UCPath Center, and six campuses submitted proposals. The primary considerations for the location were:
• Ability to leverage existing UC talent
• Local talent availability and labor costs
• Availability and condition of shared service center space
• Local housing, cost of living and other quality of life considerations
• Local leadership buy-in and support
