Reorganisation of IT

Update on the reorganisation of IT across the University.

On Wednesday 10 September 2003 Professor Andrew Cheetham, Pro Vice Chancellor Research and Information Management, gave a presentation called ICT@UC : future directions to UC IT staff. The Powerpoint slides from his presentation are available at http://www.canberra.edu.au/cc/cheetham/index.html.

His message to the meeting was essentially that the current structure of "IT" organisation around the University was no longer an option, and a single management structure for "IT" would be implemented in early 2004. No details on how this would work in practice were canvassed: staff were invited to participate in a planning process that would result in a proposal going to VCAC in December 2003.

SMS Consulting has been contracted to develop a draft proposal for the restructure: Les Whittet has made an appointment to meet with me next Wednesday.
