Brandeis University’s information technology (IT) governance structure includes committees, processes, and communications aimed at ensuring IT-related decisions and investments effectively support institutional objectives and priorities.
An effective IT governance framework improves the transparency of IT spending, clarifies decision-making boundaries and accountabilities, provides strategic direction of IT, and ensures that there is adequate IT capability and infrastructure to support University needs.
