UCLA IT Assessment Kicks Off – August 2020
A university-wide IT assessment was launched in mid-August to review, assess, and evaluate the current information technology environment and provide recommendations as well as a roadmap for improving and aligning IT capabilities to meet the strategic needs of its students, faculty, researchers, and staff.
The scope of the project encompasses a comprehensive review of UCLA’s IT governance, financial management, IT talent, and IT capabilities (inclusive of applications, infrastructure, data, services, and security). The objective of this project is to understand what is working well and where there may be opportunities to improve based on best practices and the specific needs of UCLA.
The input and insights of UCLA personnel will be critical to the success of this effort. The team kicked off the project with a series of interviews of key stakeholders which will continue over the coming weeks. The assessment will continue through mid-October.
For those participants who are not being directly interviewed and would like to provide their input, the project team will be holding weekly virtual Office Hours. If you are interested in attending office hours in any given week, please click here to sign up.
Office hours will be an opportunity for the UCLA community to get to know the project team, ask questions, provide insights, and better understand the scope and objective of this effort.
