The Cluster Group reviewed the minutes of the last meeting and identified the major projects that should be included in the Master Plan as new initiatives. The Group then discussed the identified new initiatives. New Initiative Assignments/Reports 1. eHire (Erica Breedlove/Andrew Christi) – The Group agreed that this should be shown as a new intiative even though IT has begun working on the first phase.

HR will request a new Programmer position dedicated to HR (salary $50,000). 2. Scanning and Automating Personnel Records (Kay Barclay and HR Supervisors) – The first phase of this project is schedule to be the scanning of I-9s.
