UIC Reporting Subcommittee
The mission of the OBFS UIC Reporting Subcommittee is to understand the reporting needs of the UIC campus and work to fill those needs in various ways. Examples include providing input to other development projects, building new reports when appropriate, and promoting existing reports and resources. This link contains a guide to reports developed or recommended by the Subcommittee as well as links to reporting resources and information about the subcommittee itself. Use your UIC NetID and password to log in.
UIS Business Managers
The UIS Business Managers Group is sponsored by the Director of UIS Business Services and gathers approximately 6 times during the year. These meetings are to inform employees with business and finance responsibilities about new business policies or programs that are in the planning stage, as well as to answer questions and solicit comments about current OBFS processes. It is important that all UIS employees who interface with any OBFS business function become a part of this group. To be added to the group's email distribution list, contact Cheryl Churchill at 217-206-6700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The BMG is an independent, volunteer led group that operates by committees.
