Functional Area Coordinating Team


The FACT will work together to coordinate and prioritize technical and functional work relating to integrated software applications of the University. These applications will include the Banner system and other integrated systems that require university technical resources.

Major tasks of the FACT will include

  • Overall management of new software application projects which require integration with Banner or MyFSU
  • Prioritizing and coordinating outstanding work with existing applications
  • Planning for upgrades and testing upgrades of the Banner system (as part of the overall technical priorities of the University)
  • Support of integrated systems

Members of the committee will represent their departments and have a role to communicate priorities and plans for software application work and report to the committee issues that impact their areas. Members will report on technical and functional work in process as it relates to software applications.

Overall priorities will be established by this team and system protocols will be reviewed by this group. Any recommendations of policy changes and changes in the baseline Banner system will be reviewed by this group and forwarded to the Applications Steering Committee for approval. New software applications will be presented to this group to understand the technical and system resources that will be needed before obligating the University.

Unresolved issues or conflicts within the FACT committee will be reviewed by the Applications Steering Committee. Membership on the FACT team will be made by appointment from the Steering Committee. The Lead of the FACT team will be the Applications Manager or will be appointed by the Steering Committee.
