Ballarat Tech School

The establishment of a new Tech School at SMB Campuses' MB John building (K). A government initiative.

Berwick 1B Construction

Modification works to buildings 901/902/903 to provide additional teaching spaces and office accommodation

Campus Solutions Upgrade v9.2

Campus Solution application upgrade to 9.2 is an oracle support and maintenance requirements as Oracle will stop supporting 9.0 version in next few years. Furthermore, this application upgrade will modernise the look and feel, improve work flow processes and will provide added functionality that would not only attract student attention but also it would help improve the user experience. This project will provide a comprehensive application upgrade, based on the current state of the application and followed by PeopleSoft Enhancement projects in which additional functionalities will rollout i.e. Program Enrolment for Higher Education students with FLUID look and feel.

Campus toilet improvements (Mt Helen)

Improvements to toilet facilities across the Mt Helen Campus. Funded for 2016, however program for 6 years has been proposed to Steering Committee upgrading 21 toilet locations across the campus.

Contractor Induction

Under the OHS legislation and University procedures contractors are required to be inducted before any work can commence at a FedUni site.
Contractors are given a site induction in person by Facilities Services staff however, many requirements apply across all campuses and work sites and are best included in an online induction software application that can be completed by the contractor before they come to the campus to commence work.

Currently the online inductions used are produced by RHS in PowerPoint and then converted to Flash files using iSpring before uploading to the RHS web page. The contractor is required to watch and listen to the presentation and respond to a number of questions included.  Unfortunately, this method of induction could render the university non-compliant to the OHS legislation as there is no record generated or proof that a contractor has completed it. Rather, it relies on the word of the contractor and places responsibility onto Facilities Services staff to make enquiries and manually keep records. The electronic control of information would reduce risk by eliminating human error.

Digital Student Data Platform (My eQuals)

Digital Student Data project is an external cloud platform part of a 47 ANZ University group to streamline, verify and centralise academic records online for the first time. New strategies can be designed with this new platform regarding provision of academic transcripts and with a connection to an international network, as well as domestic, will also offer quality and integrity checking for the admissions process, always accessible to the student as they move between institutions if required.

Email and Voice Upgrade

The Microsoft Suite User Experience program of works aims to establish an environment where all users have access to a comprehensive suite of standardized software and services running on devices that are capable of supporting a user's computing needs. The bundle of technologies is a critical element of the transformation of the university's digital experience and productivity enhancement for all users, both students and staff.

eReading Process Improvement

The delivery of a SAAS service to manage the delivery of eReadings to students and academic staff. This project will involve the completion of a proof of concept with eReserve Plus. Pending a successful outcome, the system will be implemented as a replacement to the current system Equella.

This project seeks to:

1. Address the current supportability concerns of Equella while delivering organisational efficiencies through the reduction in administrative tasks for library and academic staff.

2. Reduce infrastructure, support and maintenance costs through the implementation of a cloud based, vendor managed service.

3. Underpin the BOLD implementation by moving to a solution better suited to support the management and provision of electronic learning materials.

Facilities Services Alerts Notifications Initiative

Facilities Alerts Notification Initiative and the FS Process Transformation. Work is done in kind.

Figshare

Deployment of a web based system that will enable Researchers and HDR students to save, share and collaborate on research data and non-traditional research outputs during and after research projects have completed

Flecknoe Building Refurbishment

The intent of the project is to enhance the existing and potential collaborations between business, industry, government agencies and FedUni TAFE. It would put the University into a position where it could replicate industry-academic partnerships in the TAFE sector such as the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute, where the Institute employs post graduate students, shares scientific staff with the University and works with the University on common plans. The redeveloped building will support start-up enterprises and small businesses with a skills and technology focus, networked with the Technology Park at the Mt Helen Campus and within the Ballarat central business district, and in the process provide employment and skills development opportunities for FedUni TAFE students and graduates.

Future Innovation Community Space (FICS)

Facilities complement and meet the teaching requirements of the BESS and MCEP programs and meet the requirements of accreditation through Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) and National Universities Course Accreditation Program (NUCAP).

StudyLink Project

The Center of University Partnerships (CUP) is seeking to implement a new international applications processing system, that is

capable of meeting the future demands of the university. As a result of a procurement process, an online SaaS solution i.e. StudyLink is

selected for implementation.

This project is to gather the requirements and facilitate an implementation/integration process to deliver a fully functioning system.
