Administrative Systems as Instantiations of University Policy


Montana State University used the implementation of a new administrative information system as its opportunity to integrate an independent, four-campus administrative structure into a single environment, as had been mandated by its Board of Regents five years earlier. The additional stress generated by implementing new policy concurrent with implementing a new system appears to be a common complication for CIOs and policy makers. This session described how MSU dealt successfully with this in an 18-month implementation. (David Todd's contribution is a result of his former position at Montana State University.)
