APPROVAL OF MINUTES

Minutes from January 4, 2008, were approved as written.

PCI COMPLIANCE

Charlotte Russell presented information regarding Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance standards and noted that on-campus vendors who accept payment via credit cards are required to be certified by Trust Keeper, a third-party company with which UNT has a contract to provide such certification. Kayle Godinez, Pam Johnson, and Terri Miller from UNT Student Accounting were on hand to answer any questions from the distributed managers. Charlotte distributed a list of on-campus vendors and asked that the distributed managers help coordinate participation in the certification process.

STATUS REPORT ON COMPUTER ACCESS MODIFICATION SYSTEM/ROLE REMOVALS

Charlotte Russell reported on progress implementing reporting for online system access removal upon termination or change in employment. Departments will be asked to review whether online system access changes are require if an employment status change is flagged by the reporting system.

OLD BUSINESS

Philip Baczewski reported that CITC EIS staff have relayed that Internet Explorer 7 is now certified for all of the PeopleSoft applications that form parts of the EIS system. This may remove the last barrier for general adoption of IE7 on campus.

Jason Myre reported that GroupWise to Exchange migrations have been scheduled and are underway and that Exchange accounts had been already created for most campus users defined in Active Directory. Some areas still need to set up a migration schedule and should consult Jason to coordinate times.

NEW BUSINESS

Philip Baczewski reported that IRC had met in January and discussed the possibility of funding and mandating replacement of desktop PCs on a three or four-year cycle. Also discussed at that IRC meeting was a reorganization of the IRC and reinstatement of the Information Resources Steering Committee, a higher-level decision making body comprising Vice Presidents and other IT stake holders.

AREA REPORTS

Tim Christian reported that College of Arts and Sciences is working with a content management system for their web pages.

Mike Hatch reported that they may have desktop PCs available for sale to other departments on campus if they are able to do their planned desktop system refresh.

Tom Bunten reported that HSC had moved to paperless payroll.

ADJOURNMENT

The meeting was adjourned at 11:14 a.m. The next meeting is scheduled for February 1, 2008.
