MMS PROGRAM: The current agreement with CICcorp of College Station, Texas will be operated by Green Valley Technology of Texas, the company that acquired CICcorp assets recently. The agreement is yet to be signed by UNI, because concerned parties are yet to meet and discuss the details to be agreed on. An updated list will be provided showing the UNI departments covered under the MMS Program (program name remains the same). Please call Chuck Neil at 3-2980 or email at chuck.neil@uni.edu with questions regarding this new business arrangement. Maintenance coverage is still in place, but a temporary change is in effect regarding payment for services.
