Announcing the FY23 One IT Strategic Plan

June 14, 2022

We are pleased to present our FY23 One IT Strategic Plan! This year’s plan features multiple IT units contributing to our top 10 Priority Initiatives.

As Berkeley heads into FY23, in-person instruction, research, and core operations on our campus spring back to life. However, as the COVID endemic evolves, we continue to look for ways to be agile and resilient in our future planning and day-to-day functions. Our FY23 strategic plan reflects this by including IT departments' top operational and project priorities. These priorities further demonstrate the depth of the essential work performed by our IT professionals across the campus.

This year we welcomed four new IT Departments to our plan: Computing, Data Science, and Society (CDSS), the Goldman School of Public Policy (GSPP), the School of Information, and the School of Social Welfare (SSW). We are excited to add these departments to our planning and process in the coming months and years.

As you will see in the plan, we will further strengthen our cybersecurity posture this year, with nine departments focused on implementing cybersecurity policies under IS-3. Our community is again coming together to rally around Instructional Resilience to deliver effective and equitable learning experiences for our students and to help prepare Berkeley with a consistent strategy for an uncertain future. We will also focus on evaluating, migrating, or replacing various major campus systems and applications over the next several years. These highly impactful, substantial operational projects contribute to the Berkeley Campus Strategic Goals by empowering engaged thinkers and global citizens to change our world while addressing society’s great challenges. Together, the One IT community provides these foundational systems and support that power the university's mission.

Fiscal year 2023 also marks the final year of the current version of the One IT strategic planning process. Our five-year plan was born in 2017, realigned with the Campus Strategic Plan in 2018, and has served as a guiding light for IT services and support for the last five years. With all of the shifts in the last few years, from the way we work to the way we deliver instruction and beyond, we believe this is the perfect time to reflect on our process goals and priorities. To that end, we will be engaging the One IT community over the next year to develop an updated collaborative process that helps us showcase the power of what we do to support the campus. Stay tuned for more information about how to engage in this work! 

Thank you for your time and attention in providing feedback and helping us identify strategic areas of work for the coming year to support our entire campus community and the university's mission.
