The minutes of the April 16, 1999 meeting were approved as written.

There was no report from the Call Tracking committee.

Wil Clark reported that the Student Computing committee had been meeting on a frequent basis and was making progress toward answering the questions that had been posed to the committee.

Maurice reported that the Personnel hiring and retention committee had met and had started discussing the position descriptions for the Computer Support Specialist and Computing Support Manager classes of jobs.

Maurice reported that the bids were still out on the Microsoft Campus Agreement and that we were still waiting for Microsoft to get back to us with their wording on the Access Clause and the Year 2000 compliance statement for the legal agreement.

Jennifer Johnson, Assistant Director for Computing Center Planning and Administration, briefed the DCSMT on the security audit that Internal Audit was conducting.  She said that while the major focus on the audit was on the central computing facilities, it was also asking questions about distributed computing security policies and practices.  Ms. Johnson distributed a copy of the questionnaire that Internal Audit had given to us as the starting point for their study and highlighted some of the questions that might impact the distributed areas.  She completed her presentation by saying that, depending upon the findings of the audit, the Computing Center might have to come back to the distributed computing support areas to get answers or to resolve problems that the audit uncovered.

The meeting adjourned at 11:00 am.
