The Academic Affairs Other Unit Shared Services Centers was launched Summer of 2015 to enhance UMBC’s administrative capabilities. We are a multi-function center providing services in Human Resources, Payroll, Procurement, Accounts Payable and Financial Management. The AAOU SSC currently services 63% of the Academic Affairs Other Units which is 19 of 30 departments. We will be phasing in several departments each year until we are servicing 100% of the Academic Affairs Other Units.
