Health Sciences Administration

Health Sciences Administration shares a commitment to building organizational capacity, aligning roles and responsibilities, and providing efficient and effective service across our departments and research centers. Our goal is to develop and implement strategic best practices and initiatives that better serve our personnel and units, develop sustainable budget models and create bridges to other UW entities.

Payroll & Workday
As of June 2017 University of Washington transitioned to using Workday for time reporting and payroll. HSA will continue to provide central support for the payroll process. Additionally the Integrated Service Center (ISC) came online to provide support to Workday.

Health Sciences Administration (HSA) is committed to elevating the capacity of the nine HSA Units by providing unique training opportunities to meet current, emerging, and future needs. HSA is currently offering a six module supervisor certificate program and monthly brown bag training sessions. Additionally best practices hiring training and performance review training are avaiable upon request. To request a specific training session you can email

Center for Shared Services
The Health Sciences Administration Center for Shared Services (CSS) combines administrative, financial, and IT services from our HSA units into one operation that offers high-quality customer service as part of an overall strategy that focuses on the optimal use of university resources. The CSS provides one-stop services for high volume, routine transactions related to accounting, purchasing, billing, IT support, travel, hiring and other administrative functions.
