ICT Governance

Management of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) within the University is being restructured.

PVC Research and Information Management Professor has been having discussions with ICT Managers from ICT Services and the Academic Divisions about the organization of governance for ICT in the University. Currently there is no University-wide entity that looks after these things, the responsibilities having been devolved to the Divisions some time ago. A number of University-wide committees that coordinated activities in this area have come and gone, with no single group responsible for advising the University Information Management Systems Committee (UIMSC), or to coordinate the implementation of any policies that come down from VCAC.

With the current move to centralise ICT Services, PVC R & IM is looking for a structure that will ensure proper governance of ICT services, projects and systems.
