The Arts Division has numerous local administrative systems that are vital to its operation. These have been created and maintained by an Administrative Systems Specialist. However, the provision for this position has been turned over to ITS, with the expectation that maintenance of these systems—or ones providing the same functionality—will shortly be provided. Some of these systems are:
