The Central Business Office (CBO) at The University of Texas at Austin is a centralized processing unit which reports to the Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. The CBO organizes and manages financial and administrative operations for Colleges, Schools, and Units (CSUs). We provide services which give CSUs across campus the option to centralize their business and administrative functions and services. We are customer-focused, performance driven, and accountable to the customer’s executive level oversight and governance.
Customers across campus can contract with the CBO for services such as procurement, accounting, inventory, human resources, payments, and revenue collection. Identifying and implementing the centralized delivery of administrative functions provides improved efficiency. This is increasingly important as limited resources across the university are being reallocated to support its core academic, research, and public service mission.
