Objective 8.2

Maintain a life-cycle funding model to ensure adequate technology infrastructure refresh to allow the University to meet its academic and administrative technology needs.


 

Reference to Previous Strategic Plans:

ExCom Member:

CIO, CFO, CAO

Assessment Tool:

Percentage of network and classroom infrastructure refreshed within one calendar year beyond the 6th anniversary of purchase.

Baseline:

90% (2010-11)

Goal:

100%

Progress:

75% (2012-13)

State bonding funds support purchases of technology infrastructure including servers, switches, and classroom presentation equipment. In 2012-13 sufficient funds were received to continue the replacement cycle for servers and network switches. The two areas where more support is needed is for the upgrade and replacement of uninterruptible power supply devices, every 5 years on average; and classroom projectors, every 6-7 years on average.


 

Enabling Activities:

  • Monitor the effectiveness of the new 6-year refresh cycle for capital equipment (e.g. network switches & classroom presentation equipment).


  • Maintain adequate state bond funding for technology (see above).

  • Maintain/increase CIO/IT budget allocations for complementary non-capital equipment that is essential for operation of infrastructure.

  • Maintain sufficient human resources. There are only 2 FTE technical staff who maintain inventory and operation of critical network equipment. Likewise, there is only 1 FTE who is dedicated to support of classroom presentation equipment. While subcontractors are employed for new installations, support for daily operations is essential that these positions receive regular UA support.
