The purpose of the Administrative Systems Working Group (ASWG) is to advise the President's Cabinet on the​ ​vision, priorities, and pace of investments in administrative systems across the University of Maryland. By​ ​​administrative systems, we mean any systems that are not directly involved in the learning or research/creativity​ ​processes. This includes new systems, major modifications to existing administrative systems, and the​ ​purchase of administrative software across campus used to access or manage administrative data.


The ASWG goal will be to create a process for establishing its vision for administrative systems, priorities for​ ​investing in administrative systems, and the pace for utilizing the very limited resources (funding, people and​ ​time) devoted to system efforts. At the same time, the process must ensure that the university makes​ ​measurable progress in improving the security, stability, and modernity of its administrative systems that serve​ ​our students, faculty, and administrator​s.
