IT Alignment & Governance

ASU IT Governance Program

The IT Governance Program mission is to mature our governance processes on all fronts, with a specific focus on funding and prioritization to meet insatiable University demand while bringing efficiency to rationalize resource availability. It's composed of three building blocks: Strategic Direction, Strategic Analysis, and Knowledge Areas. Within these components are key committees that represent a comprehensive cross-section of the University. Membership is determined annually, including representation from five academic areas selected by the Provost, and a representative from the Office of the President.

Executive Committee: IT Strategy & Planning

The Information Technology Executive Committee provides strategic direction and oversight for the campus-wide IT Governance at ASU, approving enterprise IT investments to meet the university's mission and objectives and protect investment value.
