Minutes
Minutes from February 7, 2003 were approved as written.

Groupwise Client for the Macintosh
Jason Gutierrez distributed a chart detailing the Machintosh email client comparison chart. This was done because of reported problems with OSX. Chris Cofer shared that he found Linux and MacOS clients for OSX and will give the information to Jason Gutierrez.

Adobe Site License
Mike Wright reported on information about an Adobe Site License. The whole campus would be covered separate from the CLP renewal that is due to be renewed in May. Current copies could be rolled in at $5 per copy. Since the Graduate School is requiring PDF format there is an increased demand for Adobe Acrobat. The cost has been prohibitive. Since the existing site license changes at the end of March, Mike Wright needs input as to numbers of computers going under this site license so they can be grandfathered into the site license. There was an objection by Mike Hatch. He does not want to get into the site license. 

EIS Project
Joneel Harris presented a project overview from beginning to current day that included a project Implementation Schedule. To date, the EIS project is on time and within budget. 

Site Visit
Maurice discussed future use of Research Park space. Then closed the meeting so he could give a tour of the facility to those interested.

The meeting adjourned at 11:30am.
