Training Database and Crosswalk
Chris Cook inquired whether a reverse crosswalk would be available to convert PS codes to legacy. No answer as yet.
PS expense accounts will be changed from alpha/numeric to numeric only.
Query class will be conducted for Comm committee members at the next regular meeting scheduled for 9:00 in 046 Colburn Lab. Peggy has a draft and is writing exercises to be offered for training.
Data Availability and Subgroup Reports
Data Availability – need to understand how to access PS data and link to personal tables via ACCESS or MSQUERY. At this time there is no plan.
Know Thy Data – group will be adding a GA person. Rick McCaulley assigned as the PS consultant to the subgroup.
Trees Class - A PS consultant is yet to be assigned.
Questions were raised:
Will we be able to query on LAM distributions?
Will there be maintenance report generated?
Will we have regular notification of LAM extracts, a LAM deadline?
Instructions need to be re-written. Suggestions were made to incorporate EMPLID verification and to pre-populate LAM distributions into the LAM.
