Shared Services & Process Improvement for Higher Education and Government 2015

Based upon higher education and government agencies’ need to be competitive in the marketplace, are in the process of implementing or expanding a shared services model for their back-office finance, IT, HR, and procurement processing needs. By adopting a shared services model, back-office operations can be streamlined and operational costs can be reduced. Additional benefits include, yet are not limited to: increased transparency, accountability, and efficiency within the shared services department, which in-turn produces positive financial and productivity rewards to an organization.

IQPC’s 8th Shared Services & Process Improvement for Higher Education and Government summit is designed to address the challenges, identify the opportunities, and provide perspective on the implementation and expansion solutions within the public sector, so that higher education establishments and both local and federal government agencies can be more competitive in today’s highly competitive, cost-sensitive, process-efficiency-driven marketplace.
