EISC Meeting Minutes 11-3-2014

Enterprise Information Systems Committee Agenda
(Monday) November 3rd, 2014
9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in Bouillon 211

Business Case(s):
  • Wildcat Shop POS – Steve Wenger presented the business case for the Wildcat Shop point of sale system. It has become clear that a new system is necessary to suit the needs of the students at CWU particularly regarding text book sales. The preferred system that the Wildcat shop has looked into is Ratex Business Solutions. The committee approved for Steve to move forward and obtain an RFP for a new system.
  • Chemical Inventory System (CHIM) – Ron Munson presented the business case for Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). EHS needs a system to track chemical disposal that is adaptable to our campus. Currently the system that they use is not as adaptable as they need and it makes reporting difficult. They would like to make the switch to FileMaker. The committee approved their case to move forward with the switch, which may also incorporate more of the science departments as the new Science building opens and a new inventory is run. The approval for the Chemical Inventory also included having a meeting with Project Management to estimate implementation cost and the possible need for outside consultant assistance.

Discussion Topic:
  • SoftSkill usage policy draft – Edna Comedy presented a draft of the policy to be put in place for SkillSoft usage for Professional Development. The most updated copy is to be sent out by Edna following the committee meeting for review and comments from members.
  • Recruiting Solutions status update – Edna Comedy presented the most current status update for recruiting solutions. Many departments have pitched in for the starting cost, but there is still some fund raising to do in order to fully start the project.
  • EISC Membership and Policy – The EISC policy was presented for discussion about membership. To be added to the membership: Student Rep, Facilities Rep, Provost Rep (instead of Dean Rep), and Faculty Rep. Other Changes made: Andreas Bohman, CIO, is the new Chair, Information Services and Security were combined with one voting member. Discussion about the role of sub-committees came up and more clarification is needed. This topic will be on the agenda for the next meeting to continue the conversation.

  • Project Management – No update given.
  • ATAC – No update given.
  • Non-Academic – No update given.
