Dr. Mark Stone is The Texas A&M University System Chief Information Officer and one of the Financial Systems Modernization executive sponsors. He also has final responsibility for all enterprise-wide software applications for The Texas A&M University System.
Dr. Stone supported the decision to move forward with FAMIS modernization over some of the other options that the A&M System considered. Modernization will provide lower cost, less loss in functionality, less disruption to the business and elimination of legacy programming dependencies.
He looks forward to the modernized system managing change and providing the opportunity for modest enhancements, common reports and financial reporting tools. He feels the project to date is on schedule with only modest risk.
