Committee commitment: Each member of the committee will serve one or two years on the Steering Committee, beginning September 1, 2016. This will allow a rotation of responsibilities and ensure a fresh perspective as this tool continues to deploy across the University. It will also allow for enough overlap to provide a base for passing along institutional knowledge and experience. Documentation will help solidify decisions that were made throughout, as a reference for new committee members.
Scope: OSU-wide, including the Corvallis, Bend and Newport campuses, extension and experiment stations, the OSU Alumni Association, and OSU Foundation.
Steering Committee Sub-Committees/Workgroups: The SC agreed to initially establish four subcommittees/workgroups (a sub-committee is expected to persist while a workgroup has an end objective and subsequently disbands). The first three sub-committees are: Business Process Re-engineering, Data Dictionary, and Operations. The workgroup is for Initial Configuration Settings. Each sub-committee and/or workgroup is chaired by someone on the SC and reports back to the SC as needed.
BPR Sub-Committee Membership: Brad Dennis (Co-Chair), Daniel Newhart (Co-Chair), Daniel Heidemeyer, Diana Lindsley, Tracey O'Brien, Lissa Perrone, Bjorn Bulthuis, Sheryl Powell, Hollie Pitts.
Purpose: refine the rules of engagement for which projects do/don’t need to undergo BPR. Review projects that fit the characteristics. Review/propose the process by which BPR is utilized. Identify BPR analyst resources from the LEAN program to model for DocuSign. Also look to augment an additional six individuals who will undergo LEAN BPR training to be available to all campus departments who want to create an electronic signature solution of a complex (multi-department) business process.
Meeting Schedule: Every month.
Data Dictionary Sub-Committee Membership: Diana Lindsley (Chair), John Henry, Ben Wessel, Brad Dennis, Hollie Pitts, Lance Duddlesten, Jose Cedeno, Daisy Clifton.
Purpose: define naming conventions for custom data tags within DocuSign. Ensure those are linked and documented to Banner ERP fields. Publish these custom tags in a “Box” subfolder for clear understanding and use in electronic documents, powerforms, and templates. Continue to grow this repository of data tags and test to ensure that there is an effective mechanism for this data to be consumed by DocuSign, Banner and/or other systems.
Meeting Schedule: As needed.
Operations Sub-Committee Membership: Brad Dennis (Chair), Diana Lindsley, Hollie Pitts.
Purpose: define the service level agreement (SLAs), escalation models, off-hour coverage expectations, integration with existing or developing service desk support models in IS or various college-based IT support desks. Help to ensure appropriate training materials are available, and how this is intuitively found on the DocuSign product web site.
Meeting Schedule: As needed.
Initial Configuration Settings Workgroup Membership: Dan Whitinger (Chair), Kent Kuo, Brad Dennis, Hollie Pitts.
Purpose: review all of the initial configuration settings. Decide which of these settings represent a “conversation” that needs to be escalated to the full SC. Look to establish as few “instances” as possible at the outset of the DocuSign deployment, but ensure the DEMO and PROD environments for each instance are setup the same way. Go over all of these settings with the full SC before disbanding the workgroup.
