IT Governance

Each year a comprehensive review of information technology (IT) requests (i.e. maintenance, process improvement, enhancements, new functionality) for University systems is performed. Project requests for the next two years are submitted and consolidated by the Project Managers Team (PMT) for Enterprise Systems Planning Group (ESPG) review.  Requests are evaluated based on need, cost, benefit, visibility/impact and risk, and those endorsed become part of the OIT Project Portfolio. Projects requiring one-time funding must be proposed to the Strategic Advisory Group on IT (SAGIT).
