Support Services Meeting Notes
August 28, 2006

Present: Bill Covey, Will Chaney, Brian Keith, Grace Strawn, Rob Roberts
  1. Setting up of merit raises - got recommendations from the department heads. We will do it the way the division wants to do it - 1% of all generated salaries and let the departments decide. The extra % will be used by the Directors to adjust as they see fit. Directors took a third of the merit raise off the top to use half of one percent for a contingency fund - it can only be used for raises. Bill has followed the directives from all department heads. Twelve people will be getting a merit raise as of this date. This is the first time we've had merit raises. We're trying to award those that deserve it. They must be entered into PeopleSoft by September 5th.

  4. Review of security levels - need to do ASAP. We want the company guy there to do it and identify the pieces of hardware so we know what's up.
