IT Governance

Information Technology Management Council
 

Purpose

The Information Technology Management Council (ITMC), chaired by the Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer, is responsible for establishing the vision, priority and pace of information technology initiatives within Cal Poly. 

The ITMC advises President Armstrong on technology decisions, including IT guiding principles, business technology needs, IT investments, IT strategy and policy. In this role of advising on business technology needs and IT investments, ITMC reviews and prioritizes large-scale projects in which technology is the recommended solution.

As information technology enables broad and diverse functions within Cal Poly, the governance structure must enable a broad and diverse perspective of those needs. To gain these insights and be inclusive, the ITMC will be structured to include six workgroups that represent the campus information technology interests. Those workgroups are:
