The University has recently had to close the Tinbergen (Zoology and Experimental Psychology) building. As part of emergency measures for Tinbergen around 800 users were moved to Chorus earlier than scheduled. Tinbergen also houses a telephony exchange to which access is now highly restricted, resulting in an increased risk to the telephony of units still supported by that exchange.
Therefore, and using the extra capacity created by moving Tinbergen staff to Chorus early, the project is proposing to bring forward a range of units, originally planned for tranches 5 and 6 (between October 2017 and April 2018), and complete implementation by December 2017. The project business change team has already contacted key people in those units affected and will be liaising closely with them in the coming weeks and months.
