UNDER THE FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT
Since the SSC serves and supports the colleges in many ways, we are getting questions regarding preparedness of the Shared Services Center. We want you to know that the SSC, just like the colleges, has been working extremely hard expanding our COOP and is proactively working to support the majority of our employees’ ability to work from home, should our facility be temporarily closed.
We plan to, and feel confident that, the SSC will be able to continue to offer the same business office and HR services. The continuance of normal SSC services also depends on the colleges’ ability to communicate with the SSC if the college facilities close. Again, at this time, with the information that is known to us and the planning that has taken place throughout the VCCS, we will continue to offer the same services to the colleges. As the chancellor noted, the situation is very fluid.
