The Project Management Office supports the project management practices for the Office of Information Technology (OIT), enabling project leaders to successfully deliver strategic IT projects that meet or exceed customer expectations.
Throughout the year, OIT's dedicated and professional staff will respond to more than six hundred project requests generated from all units across the campus. The portfolio is balanced well among maintaining existing infrastructure, nurturing existing applications, investing in new functionality, and responding to quick service requests.
To manage these projects, we developed a well-defined portfolio management process with representatives across campus. Portfolio owners prioritize projects in their respective domains and as a group across all divisions to determine campus-wide priorities.
OIT teams collaborate extensively, both with internal staff and with functional users in staff and academic units across campus to manage scope, protect sensitive data, define schedules, determine budgets, and deliver on commitments.
