Implementation of Common Management Systems (CMS)
AS-2564-02/FGA - March 7-8, 2002
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University
recommend to the Chancellor that individual campuses be granted flexibility in
the timing of implementation of CMS modules including the ability to delay the
CMS student administration module.
RATIONALE: The funding of the California State University is
likely to remain inadequate over the next two years to allow the campuses to
fulfill their core mission of delivering a high quality education to their
students. Allowing campuses flexibility in the timing and decisions to
implement PeopleSoft modules will allow them to spend scarce resources in
the best manner to meet their individual needs. Delays in implementation
may not only allow funds to be used in more efficacious ways but would also
allow time for development and implementation issues to be fully explored
prior to systemwide adoption.
