IT Working Plan

Implementation of a long-range plan for information technology projects, both tactical and operational, requires campus collaboration. To support functional collaboration, the CIO in collaboration with CITC has developed a working plan process for IT projects.

The working plan process includes three phases:

  1. Identification of IT projects
  2. Prioritization of project list
  3. Implementation of projects

The intention is to keep this working plan as a continued engagement of prioritization, planning, and project tracking.  The working plan is always underway and in progress - it will add/drop initiatives throughout the years.

Phase 1. Identification of IT projects

The IT Project list is created through input from; the USNH Long Range Technology Plan,  Enterprise System technical roadmaps, the KSC Infrastructure Master Plan, industry trends and opportunities, the College Strategic Framework and campus identification. The universal Campus Strategic Initiative Proposal template  is used to submit strategic proposals. This template captures the criteria used by the College for evaluation and prioritization purposes.

Phase 2. Prioritization of project list

The College Information Technology Committee (CITC) provides oversight for the campus IT Planning Process in making recommendations to Planning Council regarding strategic initiative proposals that involve Information Technology. Additionally, CITC provides recommendations to Principal Administrators' for dedicated resources currently allocated for IT.   Each project is evaluated against the College Strategic Framework and technical evaluative criteria.

Technical evaluative criteria:

  • Intra- or Inter- dependencies (synergies between parallel projects)
  • Risk reduction (legal, liability, reputation risk, and federal and state compliance)
  • Architecture & Infrastructure Dependencies (integration, interoperability, computing devices, network)

Phase 3. Implementation of projects

The CIO is responsible for recommending project teams, further defining project scope, and project implementation as delegated by the Principle Administrators. The IT Group has the responsibility for effectively managing projects through disciplined project management structures.  Technology project updates will be reviewed by the cabinet three times a year to ensure that priorities are still aligned with institutional needs.  Project priorities will be adjusted if needed.
