CEnet Board Update

CEnet's board of directors is responsible for the overall governance, management and strategic direction of the company and for delivering accountable corporate performance in accordance with CEnet's goals and objectives.

The board has recently overseen a comprehensive review of CEnet's corporate governance arrangements whilst also playing a significant role in the development of a five year strategy for 2020 - 2024. These items were discussed as part of the last pre COVID-19 meeting earlier in the year.

A number of projects are currently in progress to improve the corporate platform including a refresh of the policy framework, risk management review, service catalogue benchmarking, enhanced performance reporting to the board and an ongoing review of CEnet's organisational culture.

CeSIS roll out summary 24.07.2020
CeSIS Milestones
Two CEnet member dioceses achieved milestones in their Compass roll outs this week.

Catholic Education Tasmania now has 100% of centrally funded schools using Compass. The Diocese made the decision to move all schools into Ancestry at the same time, so has achieved the additional milestone of having all schools in Ancestry too.  Two schools are also utilising Technology One and others will move to Technology One beginning in 2021.
Sydney Catholic Schools achieved the significant milestone of 100% of schools using Compass with school number 150 going live recently. The Diocese also has 69 schools in Ancestry.

Congratulations to all involved in these projects!
