ITAIC Charter


The IT Architecture and Infrastructure Committee (ITAIC) provides input on foundational IT services such as the data and voice network, email, calendar and productivity tools, as well as IT infrastructure services provided at scale, such as database, data center colocation, servers, storage and backup, and more.

Decision Domains

  • The scope of ITAIC review and recommendation is campus wide core technology systems and services.
  • The ITAIC brings policy issues and requests for funding to the IT Strategy Committee (ITSC) for review and recommendation to the IT Executive Committee (ITEC).

  • Meeting frequency – Twice per semester. The Committee will determine modifications to the meeting schedule as needed based on current activities.
  • Time Commitment – In addition to the scheduled meetings, members can expect to spend 2-3 hours between meetings reviewing related material.
  • Meeting structure – The chair or a designee will collect agenda items and circulate agendas in advance of each meeting to ensure informed discussion of scheduled topics.
  • Reporting – The co-chairs will report on decisions.
  • Documentation of proceedings – All meetings will have notes of discussions, recommendations, and action items.
