The problem with removing the definition of IT is that the definition of
E&IT starts out by saying - "Includes IT and . . . " So without a
definition of IT, the definition of E&IT is a problem. I think that is why
both definitions are in the current rules.

Subject: [teitac-committee] Consensus Decision for Removal of
Following is the definition for Information Technology. This definition is
being recommended for removal. If you do not agree that this definition
should be removed, please reply and state your reason. Please be sure to
note Gregg Vanderheiden's comment following the definition.
"Any equipment or interconnected system or subsystem of equipment, that is
used in the automatic acquisition, storage, manipulation, management,
movement, control, display, switching, interchange, transmission, or
reception of data or information. The term information technology includes
computers, ancillary equipment, software, firmware and similar procedures,
services (including support services), and related resources."
Comment from GV - not used except in phrase "electronic and information
technology" which has its own definition. So Information Technology should
be dropped from Definitions since it isn't used in any provisions.
