You let us know your needs through a system-wide survey and individual stakeholder meetings. Everyone can participate in this step by filling out the system-wide IT Feeback Survey, at any time of the year.
Feedback gathered in the input phase is synthesized and shared with University and IT leaders to inform decision making.
IT Leaders and Liaisons
Chancellors, Deans, VPs
IT leaders and liaisons, with assistance from the greater community, synthesize the data collected from the input survey and the individual meetings.
IT leaders and liaisons meet with the University’s chancellors, deans, and vice presidents, share the list of common themes, and gather feedback.
Preliminary priorities are solidified as they move into the compact process for funding.
Based on the feedback, IT leaders determine priorities that will be implemented in a variety of ways.
IT planning budget and compact processes
Formal and informal communities of practice
IT advisory boards
The finalized priorities are shared with the University and the budgeting process and project planning begins.
Local IT priorities enter the compact process for individual unit leadership to advance in the near future.
