APPROVAL OF MINUTES

Minutes from May 5, 2006, were considered for approval. Tim Christian noted that the minutes seemed express an "irrational exhunberance" in the description of the Mimio unit and pointed out that some down sides, including the possibility of theft and complexity of use, had been mentioned. James Strawn also questioned whether all new installations of Antivirus software would only be available via ePO. The chair promised to clarify both items. The minutes approved with amendments as noted.

OLD BUSINESS

Tom McElwee reported that server maintenance service from the CITC will be available to on-campus systems at a rate of $150 per server per year. Managers will be contacted to verify the servers they wish to be covered. The service will be offered on a best available time frame depending upon staff availability. Servers older than 3 years will be serviced on a parts available basis. Out of warranty parts that are not on hand will need to be ordered at the department's expense.

NEW BUSINESS

No new business was discussed.

AREA REPORTS

Maurice Leatherbury reported on the merger efforts of Internet2 and the National Lambda Rail. Those merger talks have been on and off. Former UT President Larry Faulkner recently resigned from I2 board and the merger may still go happen, but the timeframe is unknown.

Mike Hatch reported that asbestos abatement is underway in the BA building and that some faculty and staff have been displaced from their offices.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:25 a.m. The next meeting is scheduled for June 2, 2006.
