What does the atc need to provide

What Does the ATC Need to Provide?

  • A secure connection between campus student information systems (SIS) and the central ATC

  • Software that can consistently implement the Council’s policies

  • Flexibility to respond to changes in policies and changes in technology

What are our options for creating the atc

What Are Our Options for Creating the ATC?

  • Option 1 - Purchase a fully-developed electronic transcript exchange from a vendor that includes interfaces to campuses’ SIS and add policy implementation software

  • Option 2 – Integrate off-the-shelf software - including policy implementation software - to create the central ATC and make a number of SIS to ATC communication tools available to the campuses

  • All options require some integration by Board of Regents staff because transcript exchanges do not include policy implementation software

Recommendation

Recommendation

  • Option 2 – Integrate off-the-shelf software - including policy implementation software - to create the central ATC and make a number of SIS to ATC communication tools available to the campuses

  • What does this mean?

    • Establish standards for the SIS to ATC interface

    • Identify a number of potential vendors that can provide software conforming to this standard

    • Support campuses implementing the SIS interface

    • Create the central ATC by integrating the SIS interfaces with the policy implementation software

Why is this the best option

Why is This the Best Option?

  • Most cost-effective solution overall

  • Can be implemented in a reasonable timeframe (Q1 prototype)

  • Flexible

    • Can support multiple means of connecting SIS to the ATC

    • Can support and manage policies that change over time

    • Provides the best means of meeting future requirements: new types of documents or bilateral agreements

  • Makes use of tools and standards widely used by industry
