ERP Business Operations Committee


The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Business Operations Committee ensures that  I.T. scheduled work does not conflict with other major institutional events. This group is also responsible for coordinating the testing of proposed new products or releases prior to their being moved to production status in order to minimize any negative impact on the university community or systems.
