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 University of Illinois information technology governance structures focus on these primary areas:
- design, implement, and manage a system of input and strategic decision-making
- create and maintain processes for investment and prioritization
- ensure collaborative design of services and infrastructure
- provide a mechanism for communication, reporting, and performance measurement
The ITPC is the primary body responsible for evaluation
administrative information technology initiatives from project
origination through the end of a project's lifecycle. The charter for
ITPC is updated approximately every 3 years. The current ITPC charter is available.
IT Governance at the University of Illinois has included a number of planning and process review activities.
ITPC project proposals go through a regular cycle of review, approval, prioritization & scheduling. Once a project has started, its performance is monitored and status is reported monthly.
