I can recommend Charlie Moran & Co. We've worked with Charlie and his folks on a recent readiness assessment for our Student Systems area. Very professional and helped us to frame and clarify our directional intentions.
I can also recommend John Voloudakis. When Michigan State was doing a similar project for Finance and HR/Payroll a few years ago, John was the engagement lead for the firm we selected (in this case BearingPoint). John was thoroughly professional and even-handed in his approach. He listened well to our concerns and questions and helped inform and guide us, but never tried to make our choices for us. Incidentally, our assessment moved us in the direction of vended for software for some components and open source for others. John has subsequently been a practice lead with Huron in the Higher Education and Health industry verticals, and is currently heading his own firm, Polaris Consulting Services.
