Call to Order; Approval of Minutes
Chairman Gilbertson called the meeting to order at 12:05 p.m. in the Taylor Conference Room on the Stockton Campus. The minutes from the November 8, 2001 meeting were approved as corrected.
Chief Information Officer Larry Frederick was called upon by the Chair to discuss the technology budget for FY02. The CIO spent ample time reviewing the budget allocations by department (within OISR) and the personnel needs in OISR. A variety of questions in connection with the utilization of OISR’s expertise (e.g., use of contract programmers, centralization of OISR services) were posed and answered. Frederick then reviewed OISR’s accomplishments (vs. goals) for FY 01.
After taking some questions, Frederick reviewed a list of possible OISR projects (and their associated costs) for FY02-06. Those projects were broken out among the following headings: Teaching & Learning, Enterprise Applications, and Infrastructure.
A good deal of attention was given to projects in all three groups, especially the issue of centralized vs. decentralized services, continuation of the SunRay initative, computer classrooms, Unified Network project and, finally, the Universal Authentication system. The final discussion item centered on future priorities for OISR.
There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 2:05 p.m.
