Project Intake & Governance

Governance

The technology governance process at USF consists of stakeholder groups who advise executive leadership with technology decisions. Of these governance groups, the Information Technology Management Council (ITMC) ranks as the senior most governing body, reviewing proposals and making recommendations that have the broadest impact on the USF System.

The subgroups of ITMC focus on recommendations regarding specific business functions at USF. Proposals with solutions that are deemed lower risk and have less complexity are added directly into a Product Owner's backlog, where they are prioritized accordingly.  


 

Information Technology Management Council (ITMC)

The Information Technology Management Council is the governance body tasked with advising the USF System President on technology decisions, including IT guiding principles, business technology needs, IT investments, IT strategy, and policy. In its role of advising on business technology needs and IT investments, the council reviews and prioritizes system-wide and large-scale projects in which technology is the recommended solution.
