Shared Services Reference Group

A group of ADE-Research and ADE-Finance members have volunteered to guide and assist the Accenture Development Partnership in their review and analysis of the opportunities for common administrative, financial and research support services. The consultancy will inform the inaugural Consortium Board, and the 15 Centres, on the type of shared services and research support functions which the Consortium needs to provide to the Centres and on the most effective and efficient way of providing these services, including the location of the shared services units.

The Shared Services Reference Group is made up of the following Center staff:
Abeysekera, Laksiri (ICRAF);
Alonso, Carlos (CIP);
Crissman, Charles (CIP);
Governey, David (IFPRI);
Harding, Paul (Bioversity);
O'Donoghue, Gerard (Bioversity);
Oliver, Jamie (WorldFish);
Ortiz, Rodomiro (CIMMYT);
Rogers, Wayne (WorldFish);
van Ginkel, Maarten (ICARDA).
The Shared Services Reference Group have agreed to teleconference weekly to review progress and provide guidance to the consultants. Records of these weekly meetings will be posted on this page after the meetings.
