  1. Approval of Minutes: June minutes available on the web site.
  2. MGISAC Administration

4.1 Missouri OGI Report – Tracy Schloss


  • HB 1858 sales use tax boundaries – email sent out to list serve (because there was no good way to reach out individually to all that provided data).
  • ESRI master purchase agreement – due in August, ESRI and the OA contract group are still working on this.  I believe it’s in our court for now.  We’re at the end/start of our fiscal year, which tends to slow things down, but it is still moving forward.
  • New Mexico co-op agreement for RKV and Timmons no longer allowed.

o   This may be a state agency thing, but some have been using New Mexico’s state contract (cooperative agreement, sometimes we say piggy back) to have a contract mechanism to reach RVK and Timmons.  When the state when to renew this (due in June), New Mexico came back with “We had no idea this was going on, we’re not going to allow this going forward”.

Group discussion brought up the question of whether or not the tax boundaries map will continue to be updated?

MSDIS General News

MSDIS enjoyed another relatively quiet month during June. When not loading and mosaicking new data, we took the opportunity to take stock of the MSDIS website, make some QOL updates, and catalog candidates for future changes.

MSDIS has been asked to assist the Truman School of Public Affairs with ArcGIS Pro training for the completion of an externally funded grant related to Pre-K facilities in Missouri. While the details of the arrangement are still in the early stages, we are very excited to work with another unit of Mizzou’s flagship campus.

MSDIS Downtime

No outages were reported during June 2019.
