Administrative Information Management Systems (AIMS) provides Western Illinois University with centralized information system services and support through the following major services:
All such systems, no matter how acquired, must be approved by AIMS to ensure that interfacing and connectivity standards are met and that data integrity is maintained. All other hardware and software Requests for Purchase for items which attach to or run on the Central Processor must be submitted to AIMS for review in a timely manner.
AIMS also provides the University community with mailing labels, listings, or downloads
of selected, non-sensitive data for University-related purposes only. The user must secure
permission in advance and be willing to explain the purpose of the mailing, provide samples
of the copy to be mailed, and provide a list of potential addresses. Further specifications
and guidelines regarding mailing labels and other custom forms can be obtained from AIMS.
Charges, if any, may be estimated by calling Administrative Information Management Systems.
