Sub-committee Reports


Data Administration

The draft policy on Data Administration dated June 24, 1998 was distributed at the last meeting. It was moved and seconded that the draft policy be approved. The motion passed. Tom Schellhardt thanked David Hillier and his committee for their work on this issues.

Appropriate Use of IT Resources

Harvard Townsend distributed a draft policy on Eligibility Requirements for Obtaining a K-State Computing ID (see addendum 1). Extended discussion followed. Tom Schellhardt suggested that we consider extending eligibility benefits to classified retirees. He will look into this matter and get back to the committee.

The bulk e-mail policy draft was discussed. The committee feels that it is reasonable to charge for such a service. It was decided that it would be helpful to know how other universities were dealing with this issue. The question was raised as to whether there should be a policy on restricting the times of the day that messages to large listservs could be sent. The draft e-mail policy is on the IRMC home page.

Education and Policy Promotion

No report.

Intellectual Property

The BOR did not approve the draft policy on Intellectual Property at their Oct. meeting. It is expected that it will be approved during the Nov. meeting with few changes. Draft policy is on the IRMC home page.

New Business

John Streeter reported that he will be attending the 18 November ITAB meeting in Topeka. K-State will be presenting two projects for approval.

Meeting was adjourned.
