Review of the Feasibility Study for Coordinating Operations of the North Carolina Research and Education Network and the State Network Infrastructure (July 2012)

This report reviews the study developed by Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Microelectronics Center of North Carolina (MCNC) to determine the feasibility of coordinating operations and to identify efficiencies and cost savings through increased cooperation and elimination of duplicative efforts. Whereas the feasibility study identified three areas of potential collaboration between ITS and MCNC, no further collaboration is being pursued at this time. ITS concluded that collaboration with MCNC would create a conflict of interest in statewide efforts to improve efficiencies in information technology.
