Liz : 2004 IMI. Has 13 counties mid Sept. server from MISDIS. Tony, never recd paper work for bid. ATF folks have never heard from. No contract. FSA funded whole state. Who owns data? Can we still have the data? Tony: We can still buy data, and put on MSDIS for distribution. RFP for survey data. Does anyone have RFP language? Steve Marsh :We have had problems also. We had to take what they had and make it usable for us. Make up coord. They dont want competitors to get their data. Jason: we had same problems. Be more explicit on the contract. Liz: we did. Steve: puts on contract that anything that they do on contract is ours. Who has the most land? Highway dept.


Ray : USGS has put a contract for firms for photo and satellite. Photo firms have open up vaults and they have a competitive price for data available. Any government agency. Contact us to purchase data.

GIS Merit System Positions



idea of MERGIS moving to guard funding issue. During meeting the thought was they house data at National Guard. Take over what MSDIS does. ITAB took position against it. Funding doesnt go to guard they dont want it. Do we want to take a position on this? MISDIS is still going to be holder of the data. Tony we dont need to do anything right now. Jeff we should join in that we agree with ITAB. Liz we should make a statement that we agree with ITAB. They want to take all GIS into one place. With Sunshine Law changes we can hold back data that needs to be protected. Tony we need to make our position known for data stewardship. Debbie doesnt want to speak for her dept. Liz we can say that the current situation is working. Availabily of data is working, we dont want to change how we are handling data. Tony is there an issue of data protection, security? Make a motion that the GIS continue doing business with MSDIS as we have. Passed. Tom S. – Draft a letter to ITAB stating our stand. Tony will do a letter with new chair




what MAGIC is 8-10 states. Group of folks with same interest. April 2004 last conf. Start up for 2006 symposium for 2006. Focus in area of education and policy. I have asked MAGIC what we should do.
