Information Technology Governance at Boise State

Information Technology Governance at Boise State was reinitialized in 2018. In March 2018, the roles of the Information Technology Governance Committee (ITGC) and Information Technology Planning Committees (ITPC) were clarified.

ITGC is responsible for major information technology decisions and is the top level of Information Technology governance at Boise State. ITGC balances the need to constantly improve and deliver technology with University strategy and available resources. ITGC is also responsible for policies that govern IT planning and prioritization.

ITPC is responsible for identifying large development projects that address campus issues. ITPC is also responsible for prioritizing the list of projects for ITGC to review, revise, and ultimately, approve. The co-chairs of ITPC serve as the bridge between ITPC and ITGC.

See Governance Structure for additional information.
