  • IR performs System of Record reporting
  • IR holds the only high quality longitudinal data at the institution – our ‘institutional memory’
  • Critical to preserve the data and the knowledge base in IR
  • IR receives support from ACNS, and synergies were obtained therefrom
  • IR interacting well with IS has been very beneficial (both under the CIO)
  • CSUL Retreat - 2.bIR Integration
  • Ambivalent insofar as agreement
  • Analysis
  • IR operates relatively independently from CSUL; the only synergy would be with ACNS
  • There is synergy with IS, under the CIO, and this should be preserved
  • First determine what happens with the CIO position and with ACNS
  • Prioritization – Low, pending decisions presented above
