This study was set out to find out the deployment strategies of academic staff involved in result processing; identify the problems associated with the use of OAUISIS and e-portal; discuss the significant improvements and or drawbacks in applying the new technology in the processing of students’ results; and examine the impact of the administrative responsibility on the academic staff’s career development. The research design that was adopted for this study is the case study design. The population for the study comprises all lecturers in Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Nigeria from where ten lecturers were purposively selected as cases that were studied. Although results computation is expected to be done by all lecturers but the senior colleagues were not well disposed to it and most of them were not involved in computation of results. It was also discovered that lecturers could work and not compute results if they were not assigned to do so. The study recommends among others that the new technology should be embraced by all, lecturers who are involved in results computation should be motivated in different ways to respond positively to the package and, this new technology should be reviewed regularly.
