August 2008
Sponsor: Academic Affairs (Pelissero) / Project Manager: Adams, Slazyk, Pullen / Health:   

  • After start of school activity, LOCUS enhancements will take on higher priority.  Currently:
    • 8 projects need clearer definition and/or requirements.
    • 2 projects need a test environment and test plan (Change of Grade and Apply for Graduation).
    • 3 projects have been restarted after upgrade (Federal Work Study, Debug Account Audit statement and Department Receipt data entry).
    • 1 project has been cancelled (Correct Unpaid Balance on Self-Service).
    • 1 project has no ITS resources needed at this time (Collections Module).
    • 1 project is completed (Default Transcript Level).
  • Next Steps: (1) Detail projects, sponsors, requirements and time frames to carry forward to Campus Solutions 9.0.

May 2008
Sponsor: Academic Affairs (Pelissero) / Project Manager: Adams, Slazyk, Pullen / Health: 

  • It was expected that work on enhancements would slowdown this planning cycle because the Student System Upgrade would impact the availability of both ITS and client department resources. Of 17 projects, four are complete and one near-complete. The remaining projects have been held up due to incomplete requirements definitions (eight projects) or incomplete testing (4 projects).

 

  • Next Steps: Detailed projects and time frames to carry forward to Campus Solutions 9.0 – some may be cancelled with the new functionality available in the upgraded system.
