After an exhaustive review of all potential alternatives, the consensus decision was to move forward with a PeopleSoft functional upgrade. The decision process involved:
- Individuals from campuses
- Four separate discussions with the IT Governance Council (comprised of the 3 campus Chief Financial Officers and Provosts, Vice Chancellors for Finance and Academic Affairs and Student Success, and campus CIOs)
- Two discussions with the Shared Services Council (Chancellor and 3 University Presidents as well as CFOs and Provosts) resulting in an approval to move forward with a functional upgrade.
- A discussion with the Board of Regents and final approval by the Board of Regents at their May 16, 2013 meeting.
