Information Technology Solutions is proud to recognize IT Procurement Analyst, Olivia Lara, as our April 2019, Employee of the Month. Olivia consistently displays an exemplary work ethic, knowledge and dedication to the success of her customers. She is always willing to go above and beyond her regular job duties to serve the needs of her customers and the ITS organization.

Olivia recently oversaw several large RFP projects that required an intense amount of time, energy and attention to detail. She partnered with UCR Central Procurement and assisted them with process improvements, templates, scoring mechanisms, RFP interviews, and more. She has a unique knowledge on how the procurement of technology is nuanced and different than other common goods, which makes her in invaluable asset to the ITS organization.

One of the things Olivia loves about working in the ITS organization is seeing the new technology come full circle. “I am used to purchasing goods and services and not always seeing the finished product, and here at ITS, I am able to see the finished product and how students, faculty and staff interact with it,” said Lara

Olivia, thank you for your hard work and dedication to ITS. Congratulations on this well-deserved achievement!
