Maximizing institutional value from technological investments is important to drive innovation and transformation for the University. IT and IM governance at uOttawa is multi-tiered and has cross-campus representation to ensure the interests of all are captured and considered. A culture of collaboration, transparency and effectiveness is at the heart of its deliberations and processes.

The University Information Governance Council leads these governance efforts and is supported by three sub-committees. Other consultative, advisory and functional groups also form the governance ecosystem. Specifically, the main goals of the governance are:

  • Maximize institutional value from Information Technology and Information Management investments and practices, and to ensure campus wide alignment with the University’s strategic objectives and priorities.
  • Ensures transparency and an increased level of collaboration within the institution.
  • Create and stimulate the critical dialogue that will lead to better and more informed decisions for Information Management and Information Technology.
  • Make relevant and timely recommendations on proposed and current initiatives and projects.
