The Information Technology Strategy Committee (ITSC) provides direct oversight of the campus IT governance structure for UC Berkeley, and supports Berkeley’s teaching, research, and service missions by reviewing and evaluating strategies, plans, policies, and investments, regarding the use of information technology (IT), and making recommendations for action.
The Committee is charged with:
- Understanding the critical IT needs for faculty, researchers, students and staff.
- Reviewing key developments in information technology for potential impacts to, and adoption by, UC Berkeley.
- Appraising the breadth and scope of Berkeley’s IT portfolio to prioritize reallocations and/or investments in new capabilities to support the University’s core missions, to facilitate broad understanding of and reduce duplication in the portfolio, and to identify potential for efficiencies and cost savings in Berkeley’s business operations.
- Providing guidance to the campus on a variety of IT-related issues.
- Determining the criteria for issues that will be considered by the ITSC, and revisiting these on an annual basis.
- Making recommendations to the Executive Finance Committee about financial/budget issues, and the EVCP Operations Group for policy and other issues.
The ITSC receives input from five governance subcommittees:
- Enterprise Applications and Data Committee
- Student Information Systems Executive Steering Committee
- Research, Teaching, and Learning Technologies Committee
- Information Risk Governance Committee
- IT Architecture and Infrastructure Committee
In addition, input received by the CIO, from the following advisory committees, may also be brought to the attention of ITSC, when needed, as part of evaluation and priority-setting processes:
- IT Leadership Group (IT leaders with direct reporting relationship to CIO)
- IT Community Council (leaders of distributed IT organizations)
- Student Technology Council
