Please review these definitions and directions before filling out the "School Goals"
worksheet page.

Goal: A unit’s statement of a technology related objective, project, or task.

   l   High-level Goals: Are indicated by red text. These are the theme related
       goals that were developed from the university’s strategic planning efforts.

   l   Shared Goals: Are indicated by the yellow categories and fall within each of
       the high-level goals. Shared goals are common to all academic units. Some
       are university mandates (HIPAA compliance, for example) and others were
       developed from previous academic technology plans submitted. Units
       should respond to every shared goal. If a shared goal does not apply,
       indicate this and explain why.

   l   Unit Goals: Are indicated by the green categories and also fall within each of
       the high-level goals. Unit goals are items that are unique and specific to the
       academic unit.
   NOTES: Use the copy function to replicate shared and unit goal rows as needed.
   Caution should be used during this operation to ensure formulas that generate
   category and high-level goal totals are retained. Cell height may need to be
   manually adjusted after editing. The example items provided under Goal 1 are
   intended to demonstrate formatting and formulas. These should be replaced
   with appropriate items from the unit.

Measure of Success: Specify metrics to be used to define when the goal is attained.

Current Status: Indicate the progress made or reasons for lack of progress toward the goal.

Funding Considerations: How will the goal be financed? This section breaks
 down the budget components of the plan and better identifies the source of the
 funding. Each category includes a breakout of one-time and CAR (continuing
 annual requirement) dollars.

  l    Projected Costs: What is the total estimated cost to achieve the goal?
       Develop your best estimate of the expenditure required to complete the goal.

   l   Funded: How much of the projected cost is funded? Identify the monies
       budgeted for the goal by identifying how much is allocated by one-time versus
       CAR dollars.

   l   Unfunded: How much of the projected cost is unfunded? Identify the monies
       needed for the goal that have not been secured. Again, indicate if the unfunded
       portion has one-time versus CAR components.

Submission: Units are encouraged to review a draft of their plan with their IT Client Partner
  before making a final submission. Be sure to replace your unit's name in cell A4. Name
  the file as "2006FallTechPlan_UNITNAME.xls" (replacing your unit's name).
