The Business Services Team of the School of Human Ecology (HE-Business Services) provides administrative support to the school's staff and faculty with dedicated support accounts. Faculty with dedicated support accounts have the option of working directly with the Business Services Team or their department/program's administrators. All faculty are always welcome to work directly with their department or program administrators to submit business services requests to the school's centralized Business Services Team for processing.
The preferred contact method to reach the Business Services Team for general inquires, contract processing, account maintenance, and purchase requests is our he-business services distribution list, email@example.com. You should not email the Business Services Team Contacts to their direct email accounts. When submitting emails for purchases or contracts to the Business Services Team, to aid in prioritization of work and any future searches, it is a best practice to include a descriptive subject line to your email. For instance, Purchase Request Form: Vendor Name - Requestor Name - Date Needed or Contract Request: Vendor Name - Agreement Type - Desired Start Date. It also helpful to include any relevant context in the body of your message related to the purchase or contract. Emailing the distribution list will ensure the quickest turnaround.
When working directly with the Business Services Team to submit travel authorization requests, travel reimbursement requests, vendor payment requests, reimbursement requests, and entertainment payment request you will use the online request system, https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/services/requests/. More information related to how to use the online request system can be found in the below guides in the forms section.
