The Information Technology environment at Queen`s depends on strong working partnerships between the Office of the CIO and Associate Vice-Principal (Information Technology Services), the department of Information Technology Services (enterprise), the faculty, research, student and administrative IT groups (distributed), and the entire Queen`s community, to ensure that Queen`s information technology environment enables us towards the goals of our Academic and Strategic Research plans.
The primary goals of IT Governance at Queen`s are to foster collaboration, eliminate redundancy, ensure alignment, make effective use of resources, and provide transparency in the process.
IT Oversight establishes priorities for information technology investment at the University, in alignment with other institutional priorities. It approves relevant policies, IT planning and investment decisions. It also ensures that significant opportunities for leveraging technology are considered, that significant technology-related risks are addressed, and that use of University resources and IT and information security are optimized.
At Queen's, this oversight is provided by the Vice-Principals' Operations Committee (VPOC) and the Operational Review Committee (ORC), as well as the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees.
At present, the following committees also help set strategic direction for information technology at Queen's:
This group provides input and direction regarding ongoing PeopleSoft related maintenance, development and software upgrade activities and will be part of the larger campus Governance Structure for Information Technology and Services. The group will focus on matters dealing with information technology applications and processes specifically related to PeopleSoft. A regular update from this working group will be provided to the Administrative Systems Steering Committee (ASSC).
This team oversees all operational aspects of the enterprise Information Technology Services department at Queen`s.
