George reports on the ERP. Key points are listed here:
vendor demos last semester, a majority of faculty, staff and
administrators support Sungaard SCT.
committee members were concerned that no summary analysis was offered
showing how Sungaard is better.

added on later but add-ons are not currently included in the negotiations.

with Sungaard (COM is already in negotiations) and March 24 Board
meeting—vote to approve contract with Sungaard
