Governance, Funding and Staffing
Dramatically overhaul IT funding, enhance campus standards and recommendations for IT staffing, improve understanding of IT governance and CIO organizational framework
Funding, staffing and governance form an interdependent foundation on which campus information technology rests. Funding and governance establish priorities. The campus community relies on adequate funding and campus input to focus on the “right things.” Appropriate governance and staff support builds mutual trust. Opportunities exist to improve consistency and fairness campus-wide.
When mature, we will see equal access and funding for basic services across campus (from Humanities to Engineering). Services will be scalable, flexible and dynamic, moving from innovation to sunset. Good governance and funding controls would help reduce “frivolous” requests. Representative decision making will be clear and transparent. When mature, fewer institutional resources will be focused on redundant IT investments.
