IT governance

Our IT governance process provides strategic leadership for investments in information technology. It establishes campus-wide IT priorities and policies in accordance with the University Strategic Plan and is accountable to the university. Information about how to formally submit a proposal for a new initiative to the IT Investment Review Process is available on UM Intranet > About IST > IT governance.
