Welcome to the AST Website

Thank you for visiting the University of Michigan's Administrative Services Transformation (AST) website. This website includes details about the two major initiatives that are the foundation of the AST project—Shared Services and Strategic Sourcing.

Both of these efforts, which focus on increasing efficiencies and maximizing resources, were developed collaboratively with input from leaders from across the university. The AST project is just one of many major initiatives underway across the university that are dedicated to helping U-M remain financially healthy, remain one of the best public institutions in the world, and support its core missions of teaching, research, and patient care.
