Who We Are

    Coordinated Operating Research Entities Facilities Manager


  • Bill Halteman

    Statistical Consultant, Member of the Science Advisory Board

Under the leadership of UMaine’s Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate School, Kody Varahramyan, Technical and Administrative Services Central or TASC (formerly the Shared Resources Pool) is a customer-focused organizational model that consolidates specific operations in order to reduce inefficiencies and duplicative costs, and increase customer service. It can take many forms – administrative and financial support, technical expertise, business development, and marketing and communications assistance. Operating units are able to contract time from this technician pool to secure needed talent from skilled technicians while avoiding the requirement to hire new staff to fulfill occasional needs.
