In a design to bring more support to two smaller units, Vice Chancellor has asked the Business Contracts & Brand Protection Office, under the leadership of Michèle Huff;  and Property Management & Library Bindery, under the direction of Eric Anglim; to report into Supply Chain Management and Chief Procurement Officer Russ Chung. This new reporting will begin on February 1.

This action resulted in a savings of 1,026,000 KWh for a savings to campus of $157,400.
