Oct 15-19, 2012 ctcLink update

  • ctcLink leadership was involved in contract negotiations planning this week with the external, ERP-expert counsel hired to assist with this process. Negotiations with Oracle and Ciber will begin at the end of this month. Due to the size and complexity of the project, it is not certain how long the contract negotiations will take. When we have more specific information about the progress, we will share it here.


  • ctcLink staff held several interview sessions with leadership and management staff at both FirstLink colleges (Spokane and Tacoma). The interviews, with questions such as “How well do people know the purpose and expected benefits of ctcLink today?” and “What are the top 3 issues/concerns expressed to-date about ctcLink?” will help inform an upcoming survey to a broader group at each pilot college. The interview sessions and survey results will also give each college a better understanding of what their college community needs to fully prepare for implementation of a new software/administrative system and to understand how the new system will change the way many people do their jobs today. This interview and survey process will be available to all colleges in the future.


  •  ctcLink staff recently gave project updates at the following commission/council meetings: Business Affairs Commission; Public Information Commission; Financial Aid Council; Budget, Accounting and Reporting; and Student Services Commission. More presentations are scheduled for this and next month. If your group has an upcoming meeting and we’re not on your agenda and you’d like us to be, please contact Janelle Runyon: jrunyon@sbctc.edu.



About ctclinknews

ctcLink is a single, centralized system of online tools for student services and administrative functions for all 34 community and technical colleges in Washington. In the next several years, ctcLink will be implemented on every campus, providing online tools for everything from admissions to graduation. The first three ("FirstLink") colleges came online in August 2015. A wave of 8 more colleges (cleverly named "Wave 1") will switch over to the new ctcLink system in August 2016, followed by Wave 2 in 2017 and Wave 3 in 2018.
