The Ad Hoc Information Technology Task Force is releasing a preview draft
to the UVM community for your review and comment. Note that the draft in
its current form has not been reviewed or accepted by the President,
Provost or Vice Presidents.

The report is by no means complete. It does not yet include the
implementation budgets or chronologies that will be part of our final
report. In order to reduce the volume of the preliminary report, we have
omitted assessment appendices as well as sections in which we are not yet
ready to make substantial recommendations or feel that no changes are
necessary. These will be included in the final report. We are happy to
report that nearly all task force members have had a hand in the writing
and honing of the report, and that there seems to be no significant dissent
regarding our fundamental recommendations.

Our intent is that this preview report will stimulate discussion of the
issues and our recommendations. We intend to have an open forum shortly and
will be participating in the information technology "Info Day" on November
20. We hope these efforts can lead to a growing consensus similar to our

The current draft is available on the Web at:

The final report, which is planned for the end of the semester, will be
guided by the feedback from the UVM community, and will include more
specific recommendations, including prospective implementation budgets and
chronologies as well as assessments of key information technology arenas.
