Faced with budget cuts, University of California, Davis, officials have announced a plan to eliminate between 136 and 194 employee positions over the next three years.

The staff reductions will be achieved through a major consolidation of administrative services. The plan for the reorganization, to be completed by summer 2013, was presented Monday during a campus forum led by Chancellor Linda Katehi and attended by about 360 UC Davis staff members.

The consolidation will shift most financial, human resources and information technology functions from six divisions – administrative and resource management, information and education technology, offices of the chancellor and provost, student affairs, university relations and the office of research – into a shared service center. The reorganization will reduce staffing in those areas from a current 650 full-time equivalent positions to between 456 and 514 positions.
