RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - The University of California is seeking to cut costs with a new service center that will handle administrative duties for its 10 campuses and five medical centers.
UC officials on Thursday announced that the new facility will open in July 2013 at UC Riverside, which was one of six campuses that applied to host it.
Administrators say the shared center is expected to save as much as $100 million annually by creating a single payroll and human resources system for all campuses and medical centers.
The Riverside facility is a key part of UC's "Working Smarter Initiative," which was launched to save money in response to deep cuts in state funding.
The center will employ as many as 600 workers when all UC locations have switched to the new system.
