MVFR requesting draft minutes. -Joyce will include them in email

 

4.  Discussion:  Conference call with Daniel from Info Tech (subject: email and phone)

 Daniel confirmed that Admins laptop is fully encrypted.  Currently 5 Microsoft licenses at

 $6 per license, Town Clerk and Treasurer $15 per license per month  (can lock into an annual package for a few dollars less per month)

 

Moving forward Emails can be forwarded from old to new, with a message that old email, after a certain date will no longer work or be valid

 

Migration price – estimate based on 16 hours $1300 to $1400

 

                  Migrating email out of fairpoint into new platform – possible 3 hours per mailbox

Info Tech (Dan)will perform this task in evening from his location

 

Currently there is not a force password reset. This can be done. IT recommends 90 to 120 days.  The Town currently does not have lock out of account enabled.  Password reuse would be part of the password reset.  Remote user – time out, IT explained the Town has had it in the past and it will kick one out (15 min inactive logout and 1 hour use)  IT can control immediate lockout for stolen or lost equipment.  Two factor authentication, if remote it is two factor and Microsoft can also handle two factor.

 

Suggested that Dan from Info Tech look into MMA Technology Conference

 

Chair Hibbard will compile all information needed for migration and get it to Dan at info tech

 

Administrative Assistant does not have access to shared files unless we move it to cloud – IT recommends cloud for all files except trio (this will secure trio more/and free up space)

 

MVFR not part of IT support; Tablets in the field, may not be as effective as it would be on a desktop.  Would be half the cost to manage a tablet as it would be to manage a desktop.

 

PHONES

Nextva – can not guarantee a number can be moved over.  Local carrier has the bank of numbers and are not obligated to release. Phones can be forwarded for a time (until consolidated has been discontinued).  Current outgoing emails from Town officials should include note:   New phone numbers coming in June (listing numbers assigned) Consolidated billing cycle is the 19th.  Selectboard suggest June 15th for phone switch over.  IT Can start the email process.  IT can  also manage domain.

 

Chair Hibbard – will get with Jodie on moving forward and let IT know

 

Phone numbers  will be:  207-774-2633   Main # 

                                                     207-774 -2634  Administrative and Assessing
