Orbis2


Project Start Date: Wed 4/19/00
Project Finish Date: Tue 12/31/02


This initial Orbis2 Project Plan is more detailed for the work to be done in the first several months. Among other things, the plan responds to the advice given at the 13 April meeting that we should shorten as much as possible the time required to identify the vendor for our new LMS, to advance the date when we start our implementation activities.
