Here are the groups involved in implementing OneIT at the University of Iowa.
The UI introduced a new budget process in 2017. In this process, there are six Central Services Advisory Committees, including one for IT. Their role is to establish an ongoing review of each business unit and to assess, prioritize, and submit proposals for operational cost savings or increases for consideration by a newly formed administrative Budget Review Board.
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 seven OneIT councils:
- Academic Technology Advisory Council (ATAC)
- Administrative Data and System Governance Council
- General IT Services Council
- Information Risk and Policy Council
- Infrastructure and Architecture (InARC)
- IT Evolution and Development Council
- Research Computing Council
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.
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
