IT Governance

IT Governance establishes and maintains processes that create transparency, clarity, accountability, and equity in strategic IT investments; ensures alignment to university strategic priorities; and documents outcomes of strategic IT activities.


Enterprise Information Investment Committee (EIIC)

The EIIC is composed of OSU community members from across the university who represent the primary areas where IT investments will be made based on OSU SP 4.0 and IT Strategic Plan 2023. Members include those representing teaching, learning, research, extension and administration.

Purpose of the EIIC

Its purpose is to ensure the effective and efficient use of technology that will enable OSU to achieve its strategy and goals. The committee is also tasked with ensuring that technology services advance the university’s goals and mission as well as being accountable for the realization of expected value and benefits from strategic information and technology investments.
