What level of IT maintenance is required? What type of staff provides the maintenance?

There is little to no local IT maintenance or support needed. That said, there is considerable time needed to create and approve articulations covering an entire college catalog. As use of MAP grows at member colleges, articulations can be adopted from one college to another. This will save a great deal of time in the long run. Colleges implementing MAP can choose to adopt peer college articulations rather than creating and approving them from the start.
