IT Services

PRDS is supported by the UCSF IT Field Services (ITFS), the enterprise desktop support service developed as part of the Chancellor's Operational Excellence initiative.
ITFS is composed of staffing teams based at the major UCSF campus locations.  Each team is lead by a Field Manager, who is your primary point of contact for any service issues you experience.

Support Levels: 
ITFS offers two levels of support: Basic and Premium.  The selection of support levels is a department decision, and we will continue to work with your department over the coming months to assure that the selected support levels are appropriate to customer needs.  We also provide hourly services for those who are not enrolled at the Basic or Premium level.  If you have any questions or concerns about the level of support you have, please contact your Department Manager.
