AN EXECUTIVE BOARD
CECC is guided by an executive board which directs and controls the consortium, approves memberships and contracts, establishes fee structures, approves new project requests, and approves the consortium and project budgets. To allow for equal representation, each member appoints a representative to serve on the Board.
CECC members understand the importance of new product development and believe their investments today will benefit the educational system in the future. New development efforts take place within the larger context of CECC's vision, which is to move towards an open system architecture based on industry standards. All revenues for software development are derived solely from revenues contributed by members.
PLANNED PROJECT DEVELOPMENT
CECC members initiate all new software requests. Upon approval by the Board, study teams are formed comprised of user, management, and technical personnel. These teams define the software parameters, in terms of scope and user requirements; adhering to published CECC project planning standards. The result is intense user, management, and technical involvement in software that truly meets the special needs of the education market.
SUPPORT SERVICES INVOLVEMENT
Involvement of personnel from all organizational levels and member ownership of developed products enhances the ability for CECC to develop quality software systems which meet the needs of the end users.
