Strategic Planning 

The IT Strategic Plan provides a longer term (3-5 year) view of how Information Technology will evolve to meet the changing needs of CU. The plan provides a blueprint for how CU plans to address emerging needs in a thoughtful manner within the limitations of budget, resources, etc. The plan also aims to serve as a communication vehicle, providing stakeholders with a view of how technology changes are likely to unfold.

Annual Planning

Each fiscal year, an Annual Plan is developed to provide a detailed view of how resources and funds are allocated in support of multiple IT initiatives. In support of this plan, a quarterly summary of the multi-campus IT initiative pipeline has been provided. This summary includes a high-level status report on active initiatives during the previous quarter and those that have been proposed, completed, canceled or deferred to-date within a given fiscal year. This summary also provides budget and personnel trends within University Information Services, the primary provider of multi-campus IT services.

Overview

Each fiscal year, an annual plan is developed to provide a detailed view of how UIS resources and funds are allocated in support of multiple initiatives.

In support of this plan, a quarterly summary of the UIS initiative pipeline has been provided, which includes a high-level status report by major customer segments.

Outlined initiatives combine projects and large scale operational activities. These initiatives are not weighted when calculating overall status. Efforts are underway to develop a mechanism for determining initiative weight in future summaries.

The following summary is for the period of July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020

Running, Growing and Transforming

Initiatives have been classified based on the following definitions outlined in the FY20 Annual Plan:

  • Running the Business: Initiatives represent ongoing operations of services. They are required to maintain existing service levels and/or regulatory requirements.
  • Growing the Business: Initiatives represent improvements or expansions in services that directly benefit customers.
  • Transforming the Business: Initiatives inherently change the way business is done and is visible to the customer.

Assumptions

Relevant costs and resource information for individual campus-based IT services are excluded from this summary.

Outlined initiatives combine projects and large scale operational activities. These initiatives are not weighted when calculating overall status scores. Efforts are underway to develop a mechanism for determining initiative weight in future summaries.

Initiatives that support the 1800 Grant System offices (Procurement, Legal, Employee Services, President’s Office, Budget, Security, etc.) are not segmented out in this summary.

Summaries
