Welcome to Team 2/ERSO

As part of Campus Shared Services Team 2/ERSO functions as a central hub, providing Research Administration, Human Resources and Business Services support to all research centers, academic departments, and affiliated ORUs in the UC Berkeley College of Engineering and College of Environmental Design. Team 2/ERSO focuses on providing effective and efficient administration, which allows the faculty and staff to focus on teaching, developing and growing the research enterprise rather than managing business services. Team 2/ERSO will maintain a customer-oriented operation, with appropriate levels of faculty and staff oversight to support a culture of continuous improvement.

Please join me in congratulating Alice Wong as she officially steps into the Purchasing Supervisor role for Team 2 (ERSO). For the past year, Alice has been serving in this role on an interim basis and effective March 16th, she took over in an official capacity after a successful competitive recruitment process. Alice brings a wealth of experience in supply chain management including low value goods and services, as well as delegation as a campus buyer. Congratulations Alice.

ERSO is Always Running!

Every Friday at noon come meet at UCB’s beautiful Edwards Track and walk or run with some of your colleagues. Thanks to Henry Wong and Anthony Stamos for this great idea. We have done this a couple of Fridays and want to include any others who might be interested. Take a Vitamin D and fresh air break. The sunrays on your skin will give you a natural Vitamin D boost.
