IT Service Investment Board

Last updated: February 1, 2024
This page is about the legacy IT governance model at the University of Washington and is retained for historical purposes. Visit Information & Technology Governance for information about the UW’s current governance model.

The purpose of the IT Service Investment Board is to:

  • Review services provided by UW Information Technology (UW-IT) and make recommendations for adding, changing and removing services. As part of this review, the Board considers service costs, funding levels and support of strategic goals as outlined by the IT Strategy Board. The Board also considers input from the IT Service Management Board when making recommendations.
  • Conduct an annual review and assessment of the Technology Recharge Fee (TRF) and recommend changes as needed. This review includes evaluation of services to be covered, costs to provide those services, rate level and allocation methodology.
  • Prioritize major UW-IT projects that enhance or add IT services and make recommendations about funding levels to the Vice President for UW-IT and CIO.
  • Refer issues and recommendations to the IT Strategy Board as needed.

The IT Service Investment Board has purview over all services provided by UW-IT, including services currently not covered through the TRF, such as Information Management and Self-Sustaining Services. Also in scope are major projects that support or enhance those services, that deprecate existing services or that implement new services.

A TRF Advisory Committee of UW administrators, focusing on the Technology Recharge Fee and coordinated by the Chief Financial Officer for UW-IT, provides analysis, identifies issues and makes recommendations that inform the IT Service Investment Board in its annual review of the TRF.
