This report prepared by UW-Extension sometime around the year 2000 is a guide to developing a successful shared services agreement. It shows how to identify and assess various shared services options and addresses the practical aspects involved; for example, the types of services that can be shared, the stakeholders, and the advantages or drawbacks of certain types of agreements.

This is not simply a publication to be read; it is also a tool and workbook for individuals or groups exploring and evaluating shared services options.

By integrating research and practical exercises, it helps users select a shared services goal and allows them to develop new information tailored to their specific needs.

Sections include:

  • Reasons to Consider Shared Services
  • Essential Elements
  • Authority

  • Refining Your Proposed Solution
  • Selecting Potential Supporters
  • Identifying Compelling Issues
