Attachment 7.1 Project Workplan o By 1 February 2009 DEEWR will decide which sites will be included in the tail circuit builds for Stage 3.2, if any. o The preferred option is to build fibre-optic tail circuits from the AARNet backbone to the following Victorian TAFE sites (Plan A): Holmesglen Central Gippsland Gordon (currently has weak connection through Deakin University) Kangan Batman o If agreements are not in place to proceed with these builds within this timeframe, or DEEWR decides these sites are not feasible, alternative sites, if any, will be selected (Plan B), subject to approval by DEEWR. o Alternative sites that may be considered include: Other Victorian TAFEs TAFEs in other states Private RTOs. e. Stage 4 - Evaluation (August to December 2009) As indicated in 1.d and 1.e. of this document, a range of quantitative and qualitative evaluation methodologies will be employed to assess the outputs, outcomes and lessons learnt in relation to the technical, administrative and, to some extent, pedagogical aspects of the project. AARNet will make all reasonable endeavours to meet milestones and timeframes set out in this Workplan. However, AARNet will not be held responsible for its failure to perform or delay in performing its obligations if that failure or delay is the direct result of events beyond AARNet’s reasonable control. If at any stage the above milestones cannot be met, DEEWR will at its absolute discretion vary the nature and or timing of activities to ensure the core elements of the project remain feasible. This may include the extension of milestone dates and/or the adjustment of project scope. 4. AARNet lead times i. Tail builds AARNet has indicated the following lead time requirements in relation to the planning/permit/civil works involved in building tail circuits from selected TAFEs to the AARNet backbone/network: i. build design/duct study: 8 weeks ii. civil works/construction: 8 weeks iii. commissioning/fibre installation: 4 weeks iv. handover/documentation/testing: 2 weeks These builds will be executed using teams of contractors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
