UAB is preparing to unite technology talent from across the university campus into a new UAB IT.

We taking advantage of the RCM transition to create a comprehensive department focused on empowering the UAB community with world-class technology resources and customer service.  

As UAB continues to adopt the Responsibility Center Management model, IT services will be centralized, with UAB IT assuming responsibility for most technology services and some departmental IT staff coming under the UAB IT umbrella. 

“We are building the IT of the future by joining the talent of great teams,” said Curtis A. Carver Jr., Ph.D., vice president and chief information officer. “We are committed to transparency throughout this process.” 
UAB IT’s RCM transition is guided by these principles:  

  • There will be minimal disruption to IT services and support for faculty and staff. 

  • There will be minimal disruption to the employment of departmental IT staff. 

  • We will work together to rationalize IT services and support to avoid duplication. 

The benefits of centralized IT services include reduced costs, increased data security, and enterprise-class IT services and support. 
UAB IT will hold a town hall for IT employees, both distributed and central, as well as financial officers and human resources representatives, to discuss the process and how it will affect each group. The town hall will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Cudworth Hall auditorium, and there is also a virtual option via Zoom.
