Refine IT Governance IT Strategic Initiative


The review and refinement of the current IT governance processes is an initiative that focuses on the evolution of IT and the community it serves. The goal is to develop a more effective and efficient governance model with clearly defined roles and responsibilities that may include simplifying committee structures, leading to expedited reviews, recommendations, and decisions. In addition to more clearly defining the governance process–versus advising or oversight of areas that are operational in nature–this initiative will attempt to ensure that key stakeholders are involved in any refined governance processes.


In fall 2017, the Revise IT Governance Steering Team turned in its draft proposal to Dr. Hoit. The team has since met with him this spring to get his perspective on refinements and next steps. They plan to reconvene in two working sessions including Dr. Hoit to finish up this phase. The result will likely be a more iterative plan that focuses on modifications to the existing governance structures than the initial proposal presented.
