MITI is a collection of prioritized project charters, plans, documents, resource specifications, and other information about all active or proposed IT projects considered by the IT Governance Process. This repository allows us to:

  • Target needs and availability (internal and external staffing, capital acquisitions, milestones and time lines) to ensure that IT can complete approved projects.
  • Estimate and modify project schedules to address resource allocations.
  • Track and gather detailed information on work performed in order to improve future resource estimates and project plans.
  • Determine capital costs of projects, return on investments made and total cost of ownership of all approved, prioritized initiatives.
  • A one stop source of information about College IT projects
  • Templates and methodologies to assist in the successful management of IT projects 
  • A filing system for project related documentation
  • A communication vehicle for keeping stakeholders and users informed about project progress

Annually, IT assembles new proposals from departments and individuals across the campus.  Each recommendation is accompanied with a project sponsor, charter and business case.  These are shared with the IT Governance Process members (the Institutional Technology Advisory Committee, the Academic Technology Advisory Committee, the Information Systems Advisory Committee, the Change Advisory Board and Blackboard Advisory Group) for their review and prioritization using a grid that assists in the prioritization process.  Each submitted entry is judged and weighted using various criteria.  The sanctioned requests are then shared with the IT departmental Directors (Web Services, User Support, Infrastructure and Network Systems, Management Information Systems and Instructional Technology and Media Services) to determine the resources, risks, challenges and time lines applicable to each appeal.  Based upon this analysis, each Director adopts the top three or four projects which have been chosen for their individual departments.

As the proposal goes forward, the plan can be refined as needed prior to execution of the project and particular individuals assigned to the project with the aid of the resource specifications made earlier.  Effort information compiled can reveal the project’s progress relative to its plan and allow the accuracy of resource estimates to be judged.

Plans and effort information gathered from completed projects will be developed into useful measurables upon which future projects can be based.
