Budget Implication:    Current department budget.

Strategy:              Continue to work with OIS in maintaining and improving the current
                       graduate student management system in GUS. (ongoing)

Strategy:              Ensure that the graduate student management system in GUS continues
                       to “speak” correctly to all computer systems used across campus for
                       maximum efficiency in customer service and elimination of paper usage.

Strategy:              Develop any new fields in the graduate student management system as
                       they become necessary.

Strategy:              Explore possibilities of utilizing new E-Commerce system to allow

                       customer service to both students and campus departments. With the
                       assistance of OIS, the online Thesis Steps screens have been amended
                       to disperse more information to students and faculty; the system now
                       receives electronic GMAT scores, eliminating the need for paper scores;
                       and Graduate Assistant Appointment Letters are now created, accepted
                       by the student, and stored in the system, again eliminating creation of a
                       paper letter and increasing productivity through faster processing.
