21 Develop external hosting model 100  The evaluation is complete and the project closed. Any new projects will be reviewed to determine if they can be completed in a Software as a Service model.
27 PC Replacement 100  For administrative replacements in the summer, primary computer technicians were used to install all new computers. The project was divided into two rounds. The first that occurs during the summer addresses all non-academic divisions. The second occurs in the fall for all academic customers. The timeline went a little longer during the summer than hoped. Adjustments were made and a team approach was used for replacements throughout academics in the fall. This approach was very successful and had all new computers in place by the end of November, about one month earlier than planned. The number of computers replaced were 191.
