Current Projects

Here are many of the live projects that we're working on now, as well as some that are 'on hold' due to changing priorities. We have also several prospects that we are currently scoping and which may become projects.

To catch up with monthly updates from the Project Manager, click on the project name.
Universal Admissions

This project will deliver a Universal Admissions system which will provide:

* an enhanced application experience for applicants

* converged processes for the administration of applications regardless of the applicant route and type of course

* management reports and the capturing of all applicant information.

Project Manager: Kat Greenwood

Valimail

The project will implement a suite of standards enabling the University of Warwick to publish authoritative information on servers and service providers that are authorised to send email on behalf of the University of Warwick. The standards include DKIM, DMARC and SPF. 

When the University publishes definitive information on originators of its emails organisations receiving these emails will be able to use this information to verify that an incoming email is legitimate and then continue to deliver that email. Emails that fail verification will not be delivered, reducing the security risk from spoofed emails with a malicious content.  

Project Manager: Helen Anderson

Module Approval

The project will implement a module approval process and IT system which will provide a more efficient and automated process from start to finish, introduce a revised electronic MA1 form and create centralised information.

Project Manager: James Winterman

Project Manager: Kat Greenwood

Scholarships and Bursaries

This project will draw on 00068 Doctoral College Scholarships. It will explore current practice in departments which award Undergraduate scholarships & bursaries, and recommend an appropriate solution for handling awards.

Student Finance

The project is to implement two distinct improvements. One part comprises a SITS to SAP data interface. The second is improvements to the processes around the collection of student debt. The debt management improvements will focus on reducing manual processes and identifying types of debt. It will improve the student experience by eliminating occurrences of students being contacted unnecessarily about monies owed to the University. It will also help compliance with CMA guidelines.

Network Replacement and Security Programme (NRSP)

This programme is about the implementation of a university-wide network and security refresh utilising the latest generation of hardware and equipment. Along with improved network and security capabilities, the project will also allow for the much needed replacement of existing end-of-life equipment. The new network will provide the resilience and capacity to allow the university to support research, teaching, and learning, in the foreseeable future.

There are about 15 projects in the programme, ranging from upgrading campus cabling and replacing routers to implementing new firewalls and technology to enable a safer and more resilient network.
