At this point I cannot commit ITS to expanded hosting of SharePoint sites. I can, however, tell you that virtual machine hosting by ITS will likely be a reality in the new year.

As OAI (formerly CTLT) continues to move out of the serving/hosting business, we need to shut down our aging SharePoint plant. Departments with whom we collaborate need to migrate from the spaces we host, where they are now collaborating.
We are reluctant to recommend Departments use mySite.wsu because those spaces are associated with an individual, rather than with a program.
We would like to be able to recommend that a Department approach ITS to obtain a SharePoint site, establishing a Service Agreement with you. OAI would play no role managing these sites, but would play roles as invited guests collaborating.
Can you help me understand if this is possible?
