Membership and charges for the six OneIT Councils are being finalized; each council's page will be linked off the governance section of this site once it's available.

As the councils have taken shape, so has the OneIT Strategy Team's roster. The Stratety Team comprises the chair and facilitator of each council, along with Chief Information Officer Steve Fleagle. This group will look broadly across all six council areas to prioritize activities and coordinate the overall direction of OneIT.

The Program Office’s work is winding down as more OneIT projects and processes are operationalized. With the governance structure formed, the Operations and Strategy Teams will take on responsibilities such as monitoring project progress.

Additional detail on the OneIT governance process, such as how a project will flow through the process, will be shared at a Town Hall this spring.
