4. MGISAC Administration
4.1 State of Missouri CIO report Doug Young
We continue to make progress despite fiscal challenges. Moved an additional FTE into the OGI. Budget continues to be a challenge. FY13 does not look any better than the last two. Reached an agreement yesterday with Bluebird Networks to get the State’s portion of the northern loop of fiber built; construction began this morning. Continue to have a good working relationship with the University. Will be making changes to the GIO contract. Fox: could you explain more about the GIO position? Young: those responsibilities will be transitioning to Wright. Working to keep Haithcoat on retainer to have access to his expertise when needed. Fox: how will Missouri be represented nationally? Young: the same monies will continue to be available though we are operating under out-of-state travel restrictions. Cook: new member nominations have not been completed in a timely fashion; is this something that can be delegated to Wright? Young: have concerns about the size and makeup of the group which is why I have not acted on the nominations. White: will the chair of MGISAC be part of resolving those concerns? Young: yes. Marsh: are you expecting the group to grow or shrink? Young: I am concerned about the group becoming too large and becoming ineffective.
