The IAS Business Systems group develops and maintains systems, tools and databases. These systems are employed by various departments, both within the Office of the President and on UC campuses, that work with UC intellectual property (IP). Developing these systems is important for the UC system as all IP, originating from multiple campus locations, is the property of a single legal entity: The Regents. These systems allow for integrated reporting and improved handling of the risks associated with management of IP at multiple locations within the system.

IT services performed by this group include:

  • System and database administration and end user support
  • System and database design and development
  • Application installation and maintenance
  • Data integrity
  • Customized reporting
