Appointment of Andrew Hill as Program Director, ERP Upgrade
Thank you for your support as we begin the planning phase of a coordinated PeopleSoft upgrade and implementation effort for our student, HR, and finance enterprise systems. This effort is critical to ensure system stability and sustainability. High-level oversight and strategic direction for this upgrade is being provided by the Enterprise System Executive Steering Committee. Chaired by Vice President Tim Mulcahy, this committee is comprised of senior administrators of these service areas; thus, as Vice President and CIO, I also serve on this committee. A critical goal for this upgrade is that it be guided and shaped by users, and functional steering committees are being developed to provide advice and recommendations regarding user needs.
The overall success of the ERP upgrade will be directly tied to the participation of talented and dedicated individuals and the willingness of the project team to listen to the user community. I am pleased to announce that the Enterprise System Executive Steering Committee has asked Andrew Hill to serve in the role of Program Director for the ERP upgrade. Andrew has approximately 20 years of IT experience in a variety of roles, including Athletics, Office of Information Technology and other business units. He is accomplished in leading and managing staff, and his dedication to collaboration will serve him well in this role. As Program Director, he is responsible for working with an implementation partner to coordinate the resources needed for implementation. He is also responsible for leading implementation efforts, ensuring collaboration between the project team and key stakeholders, and communicating project status to the Executive Steering Committee.
Please join me in congratulating Andrew on taking on this important role.
