IT Governance

Accountable and transparent to the UW community, the University’s information technology governance structure advises on IT strategies, priorities and services. Members from UW-IT and other units focus limited resources on the highest priorities; seek to manage risk and achieve alignment, value and sustainability; and ensure the right people can make decisions with the right information at the right time.

Since autumn 2012, the following have guided the University’s information technology decision making:

  • The IT Strategy Board provides strategic direction on IT at the University.
  • The IT Service Investment Board makes recommendations about services provided by UW-IT, including priorities and funding levels for major UW-IT projects.
  • The IT Service Management Board ensures alignment of UW-IT services with institutional IT strategy and priorities, as identified by the other two governance boards, and optimizes the design, delivery, operation and sourcing of those services.
