Tiger Team Wants You!

UC Davis has done a good job of preparing for the Year 2000 Problem, but there is still much work to be done. To address any last minute Y2K remediation needs and to help those who experience Y2K-related problems, the Division of Information Technology is deploying a Y2K Tiger Team and encourages you to consider joining the effort.

The Tiger Team is a group of volunteers with a wide variety of skills -- from communicators and administrative support staff to project managers, programmers, system administrators, desktop consultants, and database administrators -- who will go into "alert" from December 15 to January 14.

The Tiger Team will respond to requests for help according to the following criteria: the system is considered critical to campus operations or pose a risk to life or life-supporting processes; constitutes a significant campus financial loss or potential financial loss; or constitutes a significant loss or potential loss in research data hat cannot be recovered. So far, 58 people have joined the team. IT is actively searching for more volunteers. Those who do volunteer do so with the understanding that their home department is their first priority.

If you are interested in joining the Tiger Team or would like more information, contact Tecoy Porter at
