  1. 1. Vice-President, Finance & Operations Report to Council – November 23rd, 20111. Clubs & Societies – Clubs & Societies executive have been asked to submit information about their group’s plans for this semester. This information will be compiled and sent to students by email next week so that they are aware of opportunities for getting involved. – The university does not have any policy governing the terms and conditions for SAC Club usage of the athletic facilities. Currently, all requests to use these facilities are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. I am working with Athletics to develop a policy.2. Operations – The Operations Committee completed a review of Environmental Audit. There have been several environmentally sustainable initiatives as per the recommendations of the audit including reusable water bottles in the Frosh Kits and opt-in printing of council materials. As per the committee’s recommendation, the power management settings for the workstations in the office have been changed so that the computers enter standby mode after 30 minutes of inactivity. The water cooler is also being removed from the office and is being replaced by filtered tap water. – Upcoming projects: i. Review of MASU Strategic Plan ii. Review of Council Structure iii. Review of Committees3. Budget – The accounting firm will be updating our accounts next week. The mid-year financial statements will be presented at the council meeting on January 25th.4. Office Procedures – Working on deploying a new online collaboration platform called Podio. This will allow us to digitize our forms so that they can be completed online. Forms for appointment and recruitment this spring will be made available online as we work towards digitizing our other forms and working towards a paperless office.
