Texas State University is committed to maintaining student system activities current.
- The purpose of this policy is to establish the membership and responsibilities of the Academic Affairs Computing Priority Committee which will determine student information system (SIS) configuration and development policies and establish priorities for discretionary projects that may require computing resources within the Division of Academic Affairs.
Computing Resources – resources invested in analysis, design, and programming services. SIS enhancements are required to provide new or improved system services; comply with governmental statutes and regulations; support the implementation, integration, and maintenance of third-party administrative software packages; and administer the databases utilized by these software systems.
Project Charter – documentation of a concept or need including a description of the problem to be solved, goals with supporting and specific objectives, and a list of stakeholders and key operational users (see UPPS No. 04.02.01, Obtaining Technology Resources’ Systems and Services, for proper format).
Academic Affairs Computing Priority Committee members will be appointed in order to represent as many different schools and departments as possible within the Division of Academic Affairs.

COMMITTEE DECISIONS AND ACTIONS
The committee will meet each semester or as needed to receive reports from the SIS Coordinating Council and key student system administrators, evaluate current student system activity, and make recommendations for enhancements. All project charters must be submitted in accordance with the procedures established by UPPS No. 04.02.01, Obtaining Technology Resources’ Systems and Services.
The committee will review, rank, and monitor requests from submission through completion via periodic status reports from team leaders and project managers. If a feasibility study is not begun within six months of being ranked, the project charter will be removed from the list of ranked projects. The committee will assist in moving projects towards completion by assessing obstacles that may stand in the way of project’s completion, by keeping deans and directors informed, and by working closely with other division’s computing priority committees, particularly through the Enterprise Systems Coordinating Council (ESCC).
After each meeting, the committee chair will prepare minutes and distribute them to the members of the committee, the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, and the ESCC. The chair of the SIS Coordinating Council will prepare and submit to the committee, the provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, and the ESCC a summary report to include the following sections:
a revised ranking of all division project charters; and
