New web resource – Admin Support for International Activities

Posted on October 4, 2011 at 9:26am

A message from Kate Riley, Project Manager, UW Global Support Office.



I want to draw your attention to a terrific new web resource for providing administrative support for international activities. It’s the International Resource Center (IRC) site at http://irc.nacubo.org. The site provides a broad range of information on a number of important topics that we all deal with including cash management, finance, HR, legal, reporting and compliance, and risk management. The site also features profiles of 30 countries that contain key information about doing business there.


The development of the IRC site was led by NACUBO (National Association of College and University Business Officers) with strong support from CUGH (Consortium of Universities for Global Health). High Street Partners, which has a focus on consulting with universities that need to establish international operations, was also an important partner in the collaboration. The site was rolled out at the NACUBO meeting this summer and will again be profiled at the upcoming CUGH conference in Montreal this November.



Many of our colleagues at the UW contributed to the content and design of the site. The site features various checklists and other job aids that have been developed by the Global Support Project. Thanks to all of you who participated in the website oversight team and the individual sub-teams. Ann and I believe the work we all have done at the University of Washington played a substantive role in the development of this site.


Check out the site and let us know what you think.
