Abstract

As part of a database design exercise, students take on the role of an administrative assistant to Georgette Richmond, the new Chair of the Public Policy Department at Upstate University. Students have to prepare a decision memo that helps the Chair examine the existing information systems and evaluate the option of adopting a new student records system. This case emphasizes the development of analytical skills required to understand the technical, organizational, and policy issues associated with the adoption of new information systems in public agencies.
