The Service Center of Excellence (SCE) implementation team drafted a working list of services that the SCE will offer the division. This was informed by our information-gathering meetings and the activity assessment surveys. We shared this list with the SCE Advisory Committee in December. There will likely be fine-tuning as the service center planning continues, but this first draft illustrates our current thinking.
