New IT Prioritization Structure Moving Forward
The new IT Prioritization committees are holding their kick-off meeting Friday, November 22. The committee members will gain an understanding of their roles, the revised process, and time lines. The new structure consists of an Executive Committee and three advisory committees: Administrative Systems, Educational Technology, and Infrastructure. Each committee has defined responsibilities:
- Executive IT Committee ensures IT alignment with the central mission of UW-Platteville. This committee will review and approve/reject recommendations from the advisory committees and approve the overall IT funding model.
- Administrative Systems Committee provides oversight and sets priorities for the development and integration of UW-Platteville’s enterprise systems. This committee will make recommendations to the Executive IT Committee regarding system development, funding, and policy.
- Educational Technology Committee provides oversight and sets priorities for the use of educational technologies that support the teaching and learning environments at UW-Platteville. This committee will identify opportunities for improvement or innovation in teaching and learning that can be enabled by educational technology and provide a forum where faculty and schools can collaborate in their use of that technology.
- Infrastructure Committee provides oversight and sets priorities for the IT infrastructure at UW-Platteville. This committee will ensure alignment of UW-Platteville’s IT infrastructure services with academic and administrative direction, goals, and priorities and provide a forum for the discussion of new infrastructure requirements or emerging technologies.
While technology project requests are welcome at any time, the Executive IT Committee will rank the submissions three times a year--in March, June, and November for implementation during the subsequent corresponding work periods of Summer, Fall, and Spring. Summer 2014 projects will be the focus of the inaugural prioritization cycle with project proposals due by mid-January 2014. A communication will be sent to campus in early December outlining details for the process, forms to use, and deadlines.
