Single Identity Management System

Yellow).  For AD this effort remains on hold until the non-technical aspects of the project have been resolved.  For META, the project team is continuing discussions for data synchronization, so that phase 1 can come to a conclusion.  Mapping exercises are ongoing.  The focus at present is expiration policies.  KUL and KUMC are setting up new test server to support the synchronization development and testing.  KUL is also completing a necessary version upgrade.  Both KUL and KUMC continue renaming duplicated accounts as they are identified.
