Structure, Strategy and Guidance

Established in 2016, Texas A&M University-Wide IT Governance was created to make informed, strategic IT decisions through structured committees and councils.

Texas A&M University IT Strategy and Tactical Plan

The Texas A&M IT Strategy and Tactical Plan, as envisioned by the CIO and under direction of the Provost, is intended as a companion to the first draft of the campus 2020-2025 Strategic Plan: Decade of Excellence. The plan will map out strategic initiatives as well as tactical items for implementation and completion in FY21-FY22.


Each committee was created to balance input from university stakeholders and the mission of the university to make strategic IT decisions within a defined scope.


The Executive IT Council (EITC) approves the university-wide IT vision and overall IT budget structure, and sets key IT priorities for the university.


The Strategic IT Committee and Strategic Liaisons advise and execute decisions on IT strategies, investments, operations, priorities and services.


Five operational committees provide input for the mission of the University by recommending IT solutions related to their focus.

IT Governance Committee Objectives

In our first operational year for IT Governance, each Operational committee was tasked with identifying 3-5 objectives for the coming year.
