CIO Annual Report FY23

September 15, 2023


Resilient, rising, and reinspired was the theme for this year’s UC Tech conference which brought over 1,000 technologists from across the UC system together both on the Berkeley campus and virtually. I think the theme also describes how the last year has played out and how we have approached our campus IT priorities: remaining resilient and making good progress on key initiatives while rising to meet some unexpected challenges.

Resilient, Rising & Reinspired

I am pleased to share the achievements we have made across our One IT community in support of the larger campus strategic plan and mission of the university. This work was accomplished while also planning and hosting the annual UC Tech conference with dozens of staff collaborating toward a successful event.

It is safe to say that FY23 was a year of transition. We bid farewell to CIO Jenn Stringer at the end of June and are now preparing to welcome a new CIO in the months ahead. Several other leadership roles across Berkeley are in transition as well, which definitely will mean additional change ahead. Transitions bring opportunity, and I am confident the strength of the leadership and amazing teams across both Berkeley IT and the One IT community will provide us with the resiliency needed to continue to support Berkeley’s mission and to help our community do its best work.I thank all of the talented IT and IT-adjacent staff across campus for their dedication, hard work, and commitment to collaboration that continue to help advance our strategic campus priorities. This annual report reflects their work and efforts.

Please feel free to share and distribute this report with your teams as appropriate.

Warm regards,
Gabriel Gonzalez
Interim Associate Vice Chancellor for IT and Chief Information Officer
