Introduction to ITPC
The Information Technology Priorities Committee (ITPC) process provides a common approach to solicit, review, prioritize and execute administrative information technology projects involving University Administration (UA) information technology resources.
The ITPC process monitors administrative IT initiatives from project inception through the end of a project’s life cycle. The process authorizes both labor and financial resources for selected projects. ITPC covers administrative technology projects that:
- involve resources from a University Administration unit
- involve campus based units that plan to offer an administrative system for the entire campus
- interface with an enterprise system or
- seek funding from the central pool of administrative information technology dollars allocated by the Academic Affairs Planning Council
The ITPC evaluates administrative IT initiatives from project inception through the end of a project’s life cycle.
The ITPC includes representatives from multiple subject areas, University Administration and the campuses.
The ITPC will forward recommendations for the largest initiatives to the Academic Affairs Planning Council (AAPC), which makes the final approval decision.
The ITPC has formed five functional subcommittees that make recommendations for projects that fall within their respective domains: Student | Finance |Human Resources | Business Intelligence/Performance Management (BI/PM) | Cross-functional
- The ITPC process solicits, reviews and provides oversight for administrative IT projects at the university.
- Any university staff member may submit a project proposal for evaluation.
- Project proposals are reviewed on a regularly scheduled basis.
- Approved projects are moved into a scheduling queue for execution.
- Projects are scheduled based on the prioritization of the ITPC and subcommittees and the resource availability of the executing units.
- Information regarding project overviews, schedules and status are available on the ITPC website.
Relationship to Campus IT Governance
- ITPC governs enterprise administrative systems. Many of these systems are areas of discussion for campus ITG groups. For instance, campus ITG may have interest in improvements to student systems, Banner, finance, or HR systems that are under ITPC purview.
- A number of members serve on both ITPC and campus ITG to improve collaboration, communication, and understanding of user needs.
- ITGC may propose projects that would be executed via the ITPC process. The ITPC welcomes this input into the process.
