The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Information Technology (IT) Executive Council has finalized the fiscal year (FY) 2017 list of IT projects.

Twenty software implementation ideas, along with their business justifications were submitted during FY16. Those ideas, along with the six projects currently underway, were prioritized according to their importance to the college. The Executive Council decided that 12 of those ideas are high priority software projects for the college staff during the new fiscal year, which starts July 1.

Some of these software projects are to improve access security for software, implement electronic forms use, improve recruitment efficiency, streamline registration, and improve degree planning.

In addition to the software projects, 12 technology infrastructure and user services projects will be worked on during FY17.  Those projects include instruction and administrative desktop computer replacements, classroom technology updates, data backup improvements, and wireless access upgrades.
