November 2018:

We are excited to announce that we have begun the CMS migration project to replace MyCORES with iLab's CrossLab core management system. Over the next 18 months we will be working with core managers, vendors, and UCSF IT to make this transition as seamless as possible. Stay tuned for more details as we implement this new solution. If you have any questions about this migration please direct them to [email protected]

MyCORES Background: 

As a result of the input and efforts of a broad base of key stakeholders at UCSF, the RRP entered into an agreement with Vanderbilt University to purchase their Core Ordering and Reporting Enterprise System (CORES™). MyCORES is the label used by UCSF to identify CORES™, and is a web-based software system that facilitates the purchase of products and services from the University's core facilities and shared resources.

In 2013, Vanderbilt partnered with iLab Solutions to create a unified core facility management solution. RRP has not yet decided to upgrade CORES to the new solution and is continuing to utilize the traditional CORES platform, under agreement with iLab Solutions.

In 2016, iLab Solutions joined Agilent Technologies. The current licensing agreement for use of the MyCORES platform remains in effect through 2018.

In 2017, the RRP assembled a task force to evaluate the current market of software solutions for core management and determine the best campus-wide solution for UCSF moving forward.
