*New* State of IT Report - 2015  *New*

Richard Thompson, the Chief Information Officer and the IT Team of the University Services Technology Organization (US:IT) offer a Report on the State of IT 2015. The University of Maine System technology services was the first group to undergo a system-wide administrative review in 2012. As a result of the Review, technology services were unified and staff were aligned into five strategic areas; Infrastructure, Enterprise Systems, End User Technology, Classroom technology and Campus Services. Some positions were eliminated, primarily in the supervisory level, and savings realized. US:IT is ready for its next transition. The US:IT State of IT Report 2015 offers a set of needs, recommendations and required investments to modernize technology in the classroom and across the system. The needs were identified based on feedback gathered from discussions with more than 200 customers from across the campuses. The next step will be for US:IT to discuss the Report with the Board of Trustees resulting in a requested acceptance by the Board and charge to develop a workplan including funding options. Then the real work begins. US:IT will solicit feedback from faculty, students and administrators on the Report and the development of the three year workplan including priorities for implementation. US:IT hopes that you will find the Report useful and you will join us in developing our action plan for the future.

The site is regularly updated with reports, recommendations and feedback surveys. Please check this site regularly and submit feedback and comments as requested.

The Vision for the University of Maine System: 

“The University of Maine System is an integrated system of distinct campuses, centers, and other facilities operating in concert to provide high-quality educational undergraduate and graduate opportunities that are accessible, affordable, and relevant to the needs of Maine students, businesses, and communities. It drives economic development by conducting world-class research, commercializing valuable ideas, and partnering successfully with businesses and industries throughout Maine and beyond. It is the state’s most engaged and responsive institution working on behalf of all Maine citizens, communities, and institutions. It is Maine’s most important public asset.”
