Description and Use

ICT shared services expects to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of participating institutions while strengthening synergies and scale economies. 

CSUC's launch in December 2013 represented the starting point for sharing ICT services such as: printing and copying, workplace, telecommunications, datacenter, plagiarism detection, and identity federation. Several working groups have been in charge of encouraging these new services. CSUC's different commissions detect services that may be shared between institutions and, accordingly, they work to meet the set objectives. 

The joint contracting of these services allows participating members to have a better position in front of providers; it reduces administrative tasks as it concentrates the purchase of several entities in just one tender; it allows the homogenization of services making their evolution easier; it improves best practices, and facilitates the exchange of experiences between all participants. Having different points of view increases the quality of all these purchases and services.
