NSCS committee reviewing proposals for new software

Software designed to manage work requests and inventory; archive work and project history for archival use and reporting; and providing staff with resources that will help prioritize and finish projects more efficiently is on CSC’s horizon, according to materials from the Nebraska State College System’s website.

An NSCS committee is currently reviewing bids for the software. Blair Brennan, physical facilities coordinator, and Todd Baumann, office assistant for administration and finance, are CSC’s representatives on the committee. Each of the three member-schools of the NSCS will be receiving the software, according to the Request for Proposals document posted on the NSCS website.

Dale Grant, vice president of Administration and Finance, and Brennan said during the third week of February, that the CSC would implement the software as part of a strategic plan that, in part, will reduce paper use. Currently, inventories are kept physically by hand requiring multiple documents to keep track of campus equipment and resources.

“By implementing this, we can improve service to our campus customers and service organizations,” Grant said.

NSCS vice-chancellor for facilities, planning, and IT Ed Hoffman declined to comment on how much the new system would cost.

As of Wednesday, Hoffman said a proposal has not been chosen yet. Hoffman said the cost of each proposal will be released at the NSCS Board of Trustees’ April meeting in Chadron.
