Friday marked a major accomplishment and huge next step for the ctcLink project. The State Board gave SBCTC Executive Director Marty Brown approval to sign a contract with Ciber to be our “system integration” partner. Ciber will work with the ctcLink project team and colleges to replace the community and technical college systems’ 30-year-old student information, finance and human resource systems over the next 5 years to provide students, faculty and staff 24/7 access to a full range of online services and tools.

“Today we achieved a historic milestone,” said SBCTC board chair Sharon Fairchild after the Friday morning meeting. “ctcLink will propel the CTC system into the 21st century with a best-in-class information system that will enhance services to students, align college and business processes and enable innovation across the system’s 34 community and technical colleges.”

Richard Genovesse, Ciber's executive vice president and chief operating officer signs the ctcLink project contract while MIke Scroggins, SBCTC's deputy executive director of information technology and chief information officer looks pleased to be in the final stages of the process.

The Board acknowledged and thanked SBCTC CIO Mike Scroggins for his leadership and expressed its appreciation to the team for their hard work and dedication through the years of evaluation, analysis, planning and preparation to get us to this critical point.

“We’re excited and look forward with great anticipation as we move from planning to implementation,” Fairchild said.

Both the ctcLink project team and the Ciber team are eager to get started, so they aren’t wasting any time. Initial meetings to plan project kickoff activities and next steps will begin in early February. Stay tuned here for more on the project as it progresses.
