Process and Spotlights

"UC Berkeley's IT professionals work together to provide the tools, data, and infrastructure the campus community needs to continue to grow as the world's greatest public research university."

Our Process

In-depth IT strategic planning began in Fall of 2016 with Reimagining IT (ReIT): a months-long process involving the entire One IT community. During this time, the Program Planning Group (PPG) formed to guide the process and to ensure priorities aligned with Berkeley's campus strategic plan(link is external). Since the successful creation of the initial ReIT Strategic Plan, a newly constituted PPG continues to oversee our annual One IT priority setting process and to steward strategic technology projects and related campus initiatives. In Spring 2021 we evolved and to reflect the new operational phase of our work we renamed this the One IT Strategic Plan.

During the project and implementation phases of our plan we sent regular reports. Since then, progress updates are highlighted during the monthly CIO Open Forum and in the CIO Annual Report which features our accomplishments on strategic plan goals and priorities each year.
