Agenda #7

Topic:New Business: Increased Funds Request for Technology
Presenter:Matt Coombs
Summary of Agenda Item:Matt began by informing everyone that the replacement of wireless access points (APs) has been moving forward. Originally, the project was to increase access but as the APs have been put in, the need for additional APs was discovered. The cost per AP is approximately $1,000 and Matt believes another ten will need to be added. Additionally, he stressed that his department will require training with regard to the virtual desktop. Matt further stated that the college will need to buy additional storage which would essentially create a private cloud. The dollar amount Matt feels is required is approximately $200,000 for the additional storage which would keep the need for additional storage for five to ten years.

Al confirmed that the capital outlay fund has money set aside to accomplish what is needed; in fact there is approximately $1 million set aside specifically for IT. Al further explained the capital outlay fund to the group.

Further discussion regarding the virtualization and storage required.

Ann asked for confirmation that the funds for ITs needs are currently available; Al confirmed his earlier statement.

Tony then motioned that if the college can find the money, those funds are allocated for IT. Wayne Ross seconded the motion adding that as long as it keeps things moving and students getting to class or work, he is all for allocating the money. Ann asked for a vote; all were in favor.

Ann then asked Matt for an update on the ETudes transition. Matt explained the challenges that were experienced related to archives created by ecollege. Testing of archives in process as well as making shells available for every faculty member. Related discussion followed. Ann asked for any other questions regarding ETudes; there were none.
