  3.   Charge for Dial-in Service

       One of the systems being evaluated was demonstrated.  It involved

       an account number and a password that changes every minute on a

       security card.  The timeframe for implementation is uncertain at

       this time.  Other options have been discussed but it was determined

       that they were not economically feasible.  It was stated that, if

       the system is implemented, the use of the security card can be

       expanded.  The issue of equity may surface with the implementation

       of this service.  Re-evaluation of the service and rates in

       accordance with University policy will take place.  The costs are

       monitored, as well as the revenue generated.

       Several changes have recently been made with the Information

       Systems Organization. Blythe briefly shared with the committee the

       reorganization structure.  A complete report will be given by

       Heterick at a later meeting.


  7.   Task Force Report on Councils, Commissions, and Committees

       McAnge shared with the committee the section of the report that

       concerns CRC and the Computer Committee.  After discussion, it was

       agreed that the Chairman would talk to the chair of the task force

       stating the concerns of the committee. The results of the

       conversation will be shared with the committee at the next meeting.
