Working Groups

One of the IT LT responsibilities is to form and manage working groups as needed to develop, implement, and evaluate technical solutions proposed or approved for specific problems. At present, UI IT LT working groups include:

Business Intelligence/Performance Management Subcommittee

Makes recommendations on procedures, policies, project work, and BI/PM strategic direction. This subcommittee also serves as a resource to assist and advise in resolving business intelligence and performance management challenges in new applications and foundation components, as well as provides a forum for adoption, guidance and implementation of new BI/PM technologies. This committee will be responsible for two major functions: creating the BI/PM framework for the UI and serving as the BI/PM governance. For membership information please visit the BI/PM page.

Common Architectural Vision (CAV)

Identify particular opportunities for cost savings or avoidance while at the same time helping to identify strategic opportunities for IT across the University that appropriately balance academic and administrative goals. For more information please visit the Common Architectural Vision (CAV) page.

Information Privacy and Security Compliance Council

The Information Privacy and Security Compliance Council (IPSC Council) assembles those responsible for the privacy and information security roles to foster a university-wide approach within a distributed model of responsibility, ideally where standard approaches can be tailored to meet the needs of individual functions or administrative units. The IPSC Council will provide guidance and support to the University's HIPAA compliance program, assist Privacy and Security Officials as requested and report to the President, as appropriate. For more information please visit the IPSC Council page.

Security Working Group

Coordinate response to enterprise-wide computer security incidents. The group will follow procedures as developed by IPSC Council and approved by UI IT LT. The need for this group is to simplify inter-campus communications and collaboration when addressing cross boundary security incidents. One security point of contact is identified from each IT organization at the University with the sole purpose to respond to incidents.

Shared Services Governance Group

The Shared Services Governance Group (SSGG) is a university-wide committee that has been charged by the U of I IT Leadership Team to improve the coordination and communication of shared services across the campuses and University of Administration.
