Project Purpose

IT Governance is the assurance that Information Technology aligns with the outcomes required by Texas A&M University for successful fulfillment of its mission. It ensures that appropriate decision-making activities (prioritization and funding) are done in concert with the university’s strategic priorities, while taking into account input from a broad base of students, faculty and staff from across the university.

Texas A&M University currently utilizes a decentralized model for some IT spending and some decision-making. A university-wide IT Governance framework seeks to address IT issues that impact the entire University through a formalized mechanism for input and decision-making in a centralized fashion, while leveraging the autonomous benefits of a decentralized university IT environment.
