  • Advancement Technology Governance Program Overview

    Overview

    Advancement strategies should drive information technology priorities. Through IT governance (ITG), we will prioritize and align our technology, data, and project resources to the IT services that present the greatest opportunities for the advancement community. IT governance supports a system of strategic decision-making and creates processes for IT investment and prioritization. It also provides a mechanism for communication, reporting, and performance measurement. The IT governance efforts use a group of interconnected committees that evaluate and recommend IT directions in support of the advancement community. For UIF IT projects, a process has been created to provide a common approach to solicit, review, prioritize and execute advancement technology projects involving UIF information technology resources.

    IT Governance Teams

    IT Governance teams are comprised of two strategic teams, UIF Executive Operations Team and IT Governance Council, and multiple functional teams (Working Groups). The IT Governance Council will provide oversight for the ITG process and its functions, and the Working Groups will review and prioritize enhancement requests and other advancement technology projects within each of their areas. When an enhancement request is submitted, it will be routed through the IT Governance process, being reviewed by the Working Group for prioritization and recommendation to be approved by the IT Governance Council. Once approved by the IT Governance Council, Business Analysts will work with the project sponsor to create functional specs and Application Developers will implement the updates.
