The current Transfer Information System students and institution staff and faculty use to access comprehensive course and credit transfer information among UW System institutions and the Wisconsin Technology College System needs to be replaced. This project will replace the system with two CollegeSource solutions by July 2020. It is collaboration between 13 UW System institutions, 16 Technical Colleges, the College of Menominee Nation and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College. The result will provide greater access to course transfer information to students and institutions through a cloud-based interface. 

The PMO is providing project support to coordinate the work to retire the old system and move to the new system with measurable and sustainable results. The PMO is also supporting change management communication coordination to help institutions adopt the new technology.

The UW System Office of General Council (OGC) and Office of Compliance (OOC) have identified the need for an automated compliance management tool to manage known and potential compliance obligations. The project will evaluate options, select a solution, develop, and implement an automated compliance matrix application. The initial phase of the project will focus on development of an application for use by UW System OOC and responsible offices. Subsequent phase(s) will address all UW System campuses. A compliance matrix application developed by the UW-Madison Office of Compliance will serve as a model.

The PMO is providing comprehensive project initiation, planning, and execution support services, including management and oversight of the application’s software development team.   

UW System is partnering with UW institutions and the Education Advisory Board (EAB) to implement the Navigate student success management system.

The Precollege Program Data Innovation project involves data collection and development of an enterprise database for all precollege programs offered by UW System institutions.

The database will be invaluable to efforts to develop metrics on the efficacy of precollege programming across the UW System, assess the needs of participants, and enhance outreach efforts to prospective students, their parents/guardians and community stakeholders.
