Graphic representing process of governance

UCLA's IT Governance comprises of the leadership, organizational structures, and processes to ensure that UCLA’s IT capabilities continue to sustain and extend its strategies and objectives. The UCLA IT Governance structure specifies the decision rights and accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in using IT to further the University’s mission. This desirable behavior is characterized by:

  • Integration of IT strategic planning with campus strategic planning
  • Appropriate accountability for IT initiatives
  • Transparency - IT plans and investments are made visible beyond their origination point (subject to the application of some defined thresholds)
  • Adoption of a broad campus-wide view
  • A willingness to share and use IT best practices across the UCLA community
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and creativity in applying IT
  • Participants understanding the value of the governance process and actively participating in it
