Single Identity Management System

  • This project status remains at urgent status (I.E. Yellow).  For AD this effort remains on hold until the non-technical aspects of the project have been resolved.  For META, KUL and KUMC continue working to resolve the problem where KUMC users are being provisioned at KUL first, and then getting a KUL formatted user-account name.  The project team is also continuing discussions for data synchronization, so that phase 1 can come to a conclusion.  Both KUL and KUMC are also renaming duplicated accounts as they are identified.

Leverage Software Purchasing

  • This project is complete.  The Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) Hardware/Software subcommittee will continue to track progress on this initiative.

Increase MFD Usage

  • The Increase MFD Usage team has completed standard operating procedures for optimizing MFD usage across campus, and is now implementing these processes in lockstep with the Reorganize and Redefine IT Staff and organization team. Initial evaluations for newly centralized units are underway. There was a 2.0% increase in MFD usage for the month of June 2015 versus June 2014 with an overall 4% increase from FY14 to FY15.
  • The Increase MFD Usage team will close out this project. Standard operating procedures are in place and as Reorganize and Redefine moves forward, SOPs will be implemented. The team will continue to track and monitor MFD usage to ensure campus stays on track with this initiative. A final report will be drafted in the coming month as this group’s final report.
