IT Prioritization & Review Working Group



The charge of the Library IT Prioritization working group is to review requests for Library IT projects and resources, and to determine whether or not they should be undertaken, how they should be carried out, and in what priority they should be addressed. The working group will create a transparent and timely process for request/approval/denial process, seeking a maximum of input from the requester(s). The group will utilize appropriate Project Management communication strategies to facilitate ongoing stakeholder and general awareness of both projects and the day-to-day work that Library IT does to support the goals of the Library. The group will conduct its decision making in the context of existing projects and ongoing IT workload. The working group will use information supplied in unit annual reports and from other sources to shape annual Library IT budget requests and to develop strategic priorities for future technology service directions.
