Here are the groups involved in implementing OneIT at the University of Iowa.


The OneIT councils are topic-specific advisory groups that have expertise in a specific domain, raise  and collect  issues within that area of responsibility, analyze  the issues, and make  recommendations. They engage other IT governance groups, UI governance groups, and general campus stakeholders, as appropriate. Members are subject matter experts, and each council has an assigned leader/facilitator.

There are six OneIT councils:

Operations Team

The OneIT Operations Team handles day-to-day coordination and change-management and ensures requests are managed by appropriate groups. This group is charged with IT project and service communication and coordination, working within and through the IT governance process. The OneIT Operations Team replaced the OneIT Steering Committee and ITS Leadership Team, and membership comprises representatives from both groups. 

Project Teams

Each OneIT project has a dedicated team, guided by two project leaders and project manager. The teams engage with campus stakeholders through project advisory groups.

Strategy Team

The OneIT Strategy Team receives recommendations and aligns strategies across councils. Members are council leaders and facilitators, and the Chief Information Officer. 

The role of the strategy team is to: 

  • Prioritize activities across councils 
  • Develop the Campus IT Strategic Plan (2-4 years) 
  • Develop IT Roadmaps (6-month) 
  • Align IT with campus strategic planning efforts
