In the advancement of effective people-centric systems, technology will be leveraged for optimizing service design and delivery, driving individual and team performance improvement at all levels, as well as data management and reporting.

In collaboration with the Sr. Vice President for Finance and Administration, the SPO will annually review and provide analysis of all benefit benefit plans and ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

The SPO will work with institutional leaders, legal counsel and institutional insurance representatives on employee relations issues.

In collaboration with the Sr. Vice President for Finance & Administration, the Provost and other senior leaders, the SPO will manage the collective bargaining agreement of the institution, lead collective bargaining negotiations, ensure compliance with all provisions of the collective bargaining agreement, and manage resolution of all collective bargaining disputes and grievances.

The SPO will manage the compensation analysis process, both on a periodic college-wide basis and on a specific position or department-specific basis as conditions warrant.
