University of Illinois System


The Policy and Administration unit of SHRS is the primary resource for university system-wide HR policy development, implementation, and interpretation. Compliance responsibilities include initiating back office infrastructure for compliance and undertaking appropriate initiatives to coordinate compliance with State and Federal mandates that inform human resources policies and practices. Through extensive scanning of the regulatory environment and tracking of pending legislation, this unit strives for a proactive approach to anticipating and managing changes.

SHRS Policy and Administration also coordinates benefit plan management, including negotiating contracts and agreements, monitoring vendor contract compliance, maintaining vendor relationships, and coordinating on-campus vendor support. This unit is also the central distribution point for system-wide HR communications about benefits, policy, and other topics of importance to the HR community, as well as faculty and staff. In this capacity, the unit develops and maintains content for SHRS web sites and provides functional project management for employee self-service applications. Additionally, this unit is responsible for various institutional reporting, analysis and bench-marking, and serving as a representative to system-wide advisory and advocacy groups.
