The Optimizing Computing Infrastructure (OCI) Working Group looked at the consolidation of IT infrastructure on campuses for both research and administrative computing. New technology has created new opportunities for centralized efficiency and economy, while retaining departmental control/autonomy. This group was created during the July 2011 ACTI membership meeting, and completed its work in March 2013. The group is no longer active.
