The Department of Business Services is responsible for:

  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Records Retention
  • Inventory and reporting of University space

Business Continuity Planning

Business Services assists departments throughout the campus to develop, and periodically test, detailed "business continuity plans" for continuing their most critical functions despite any disruptive events - or for rapidly resuming teaching, research, and support functions after disruption. Contact: Teresa Johnston,, Director for Business Services.

Records Retention

The Business Services department securely stores records for various departments and ensures the records are disposed of according to the Records Retention Schedule. All departments must submit a Request to Dispose form and have signed approval by the Director of Business Services before disposing of records on the retention schedule. Any department seeking storage for records should submit a Request for Storage form to be approved by the Director of Business Services. After approval, the requesting department should then have boxes moved to the AD/MP building area known as - The Mud Slab.

Facilities Inventory

Business Services has the designated responsibility for maintaining the University physical space inventory, both buildings and rooms. In order to comply with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Business Services annually reviews and updates all the university gross and net square footage and space utilization with designated departmental representatives. Information about land and facilities owned, held in trust, or in foundations for the benefit of the University are also reported to the Texas General Land Office yearly.
