Key Initiatives

We are partnering with academic, research, and administrative units throughout UCLA to help advance departmental missions, enhance productivity, and leverage cost-effective IT infrastructure.

Opus Faculty Information System

The Opus project was chartered to design, build, and implement a faculty information system for UCLA. Our homegrown Opus application, along with applications licensed from Interfolio improve the efficiency, transparency, and accuracy of the academic review process by replacing a paper-based process with a secure electronic profile, a convenient and automated review process, and robust messaging and reporting features.
