February Update

Grad Studies Enhancements - AES Update #1

Work is well under way to develop an online applicant adjudication system for Grad Studies.

This new system will be developed and supported in-house by A&T and we are using Applicant Evaluation System (AES) as the working name.  Later, we may have a contest for a new name.

The highlights this month are:

  1. Budget and Project Charter have been approved
  2. Project team is in place
  3. STAFF and FACULTY working groups have been established to contribute and share information. The first working group session for STAFF is scheduled for Feb 1 and for FACULTY on Feb 16. These working groups will help refine  the requirements for the new system.
    We have tried to keep the working groups to a manageable level but if you are not in the working group and have specific feedback, feel free to contact Marilyn Dueckman or Nancy Petersen. We will also be providing demonstrations later on as development progresses.
  4. Technical architecture has been defined.
  5. Functional specifications are currently in progress.

We are targeting a Fall 2012 implementation for this system. Your participation and support is appreciated as we work together to improve our level of service to applicants, faculty and staff.
