Reminder: Feedback Requested on IT Project Management Policy

April 15, 2016

Dear Colleagues,

In January we announced that UC Berkeley will implement a new IT Project Management Policy that goes into effect in 2017, and requested your feedback on the policy. If you have not yet read the IT Project Management Policy for UC Berkeley, please take time to do so and provide feedback no later than April 25.

Policy Benefits

  • Improve the success of IT projects across UC Berkeley in achieving campus strategic goals.
  • Increase our capacity to deliver IT projects within budget and on schedule.
  • Support and strengthen the ability of campus staff to collaborate effectively on IT projects by sharing a common language and set of practices,thereby reducing project risk.

Training Opportunities

The Office of the CIO will provide $10,000 per year for three years to help offset project management training expenses related to the implementation of this policy. If you are interested, learn how you can apply for training funds.
