CIP/WAP coordination group

CIP (Computer Investment Program) and WAP (Workplace Computers for Researchers) were two computer acquisition programs initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of legislation enacted for funding the expansion of university construction (HBFG). The German government provided 50% of the funding for acquisitions made through these programs. 

In its decision on September 13, 2005, the TUM Board of Management transfered the function of IT Officer to the IOs of the individual TUM schools and departments. As a result, the CIP/WAP coordination group was set up as a sub-committee of the CIO/IO Committee.

Responsibilities

The coordination group is responsible for identifying and planning the computer equipment needs of the schools and departments, coordinating CIP and WAP funding requests and, as necessary, managing collective requests for computer equipment and submitting collective procurement tenders. 

Structure

Members of the committee are selected by the IOs of the respective schools and departments. Currently, the IOs themselves serve as acting committee members. Representatives selected by the members of the committee carry out daily activities of the committee. The group has a spokesperson and an administrative assistant. No formal rules and regulations exist.

Depending on the status of ministry funding, the group meets approximately twice a year. 

Funding

Within the scope of the federalism reforms initiated by the German government, the HBFG, funding for the expansion of university construction, was eliminated, making funding the sole responsibility of the Bundesländer. There is currently no plan to replace the HBFG with a new program. Should this occur, however, the CIP/WAP Group will continue to be responsible.
